Friday Keynote: Chris Ulmer

Chris Ulmer is the guiding force behind the Special Books by the Special Kids (SBSK) blog. A Penn State grad, Chris was student teaching and fell in love with the intelligence and humor displayed by his special ed students. After six months of sharing Facebook videos featuring those students, SBSK had gained 150,000 followers. That led to neurodiverse people around the world asking to be interviewed, and soon SBSK demanded Chris’s full-time effort.

Now an internationally renowned speaker, Chris is proud that the Special Books by Special Kids community has surpassed 2.5 million members and is the world’s leading neurodiversity movement.



If you are a survivor and require an aid to be with you at the conference, contact the BIAMI office at (810) 229-5880 to register your aid. The fee is $35 for them to attend and they must be registered in advance.

EC recognized for achieving Silver Status as Veteran-Friendly Employer

The Michigan Veterans Affairs Association (MVAA) recognizes employers that commit to military Veteran recruitment, training and retention practices by awarding those employers Gold, Silver, and Bronze level status as Veteran-Friendly Employers. MVAA’s Veteran-Friendly Employer program helps qualified organizations recruit and retain top veteran talent while providing others a road map to improve their recruitment efforts.


Last year, Eisenhower Center was humbled to be recognized by the MVAA and Governor Snyder – as a Bronze-Level Employer in the State of Michigan (pictured above). Since then, we’ve stepped up our game and MVAA has upgraded Eisenhower Center to Silver Status – an honor we greatly appreciate.
