Nine months have now passed and still I feel the excitement of the EUSE Dublin 2013 Conference. Delegates from around the world enjoyed two and a half days of speed dating with supported employment, best practice sharing, information gathering and challenges to their practice whilst also being entertained on both evenings with true Irish hospitality and 'craic'.
