Abilities Expo goes Hollywood! The Expo, along with a number of our exhibitors, will be featured on one of our favorite shows, Speechless! The set looks awesome and we can't wait for tomorrow's shoot.

Spoiler alert for SoCal...you can watch Micah Fowler at faux Abilities Expo on the episode airing Feb. 1, then see him live and in person at the real Abilities Expo, Feb. 22-24 at the LA Convention Center!
