On the road again - down under to Australia - blog break

I'm on the road again for work-related business. I will be "down under" (Australia) from Sept 12 to Sept 29 presenting at the APS Conference and conducting three workshops on the Australian Adaptation of the WJ III. I don't expect much time to blog...except for possible "push" type FYI posts re: content posted at other blogs.

I shall return mate!
