Reality Check Evaluation
As an Adjunct Professor of Psychology, I was a bit reluctant to take my classes to a recent presentation of a program by L. Lawton – Reality Check. Having not had the benefit of seeing the presentation before taking my classes of young adults and some teenagers as I was not sure what was being presented or how it would be presented. After seeing the presentation the first time, I became sure that most of my students needed to see Mr. Lawton’s presentation. The best way for me to describe what I saw was that it was REAL.
I have the benefit of 24 years of service in the United States Navy. I then worked for the state of Florida, one of those years was with the Department of Juvenile Justice and the re-entry counselor for Brevard County. I can honestly say that with my background and experience I can without reservation recommend Mr. Lawton’s Reality Check presentation for teachers, administrative personnel and students, high school level or above. While some of the language may be considered a bit crude by some, as a teacher at the college level with dual enrollment students – they can handle the language better than older people. That is something else that is real. Our youth are NOT babies anymore and need to know that someone cares enough to tell the truth. Mr. Lawton does that and gives the attendees the ability to get help they may need – without judgment.
All in all, an excellent presentation.

Larry recently spoke at an event at Eastern Florida State College that I attended. Larry made the presentation very interesting and engaged the young adults that were in attendance. Larry is quick to dispel the myths and preconceptions that many people have with drug and opioid abuse. He gave several examples of the harmful effects’ opioids have on everyday people in our society that you would not expect. He also gave students surprising statistics from his work with local police departments on drug statistics for the local schools in the county. It is evident in his presentation that Larry takes his educator role very seriously and truly wants to make a difference in the lives of young people. Larry’s blunt honesty and willing to talk about anything with the students allowed several to open up about issues they were dealing with regarding themselves, family, and friends. Larry is a great resource for our community and I hope to see more of his presentations at the college in the future!

Hello, my name is Laurene and I attended your speaking seminar today at
Eastern Florida State College. Thank you for sharing your story, I am a
child of an addict father who is now clean for 8 years now! The addiction
topic has always been a sensitive subject for me but seeing my dad as the
role model that he is, I am now able to face the issue with a strong and
mature mindset. I can say that your lecture was very helpful not only to me but also
everybody in that room. Your story is incredible along with the work that
you are able to make out of it. I did not mind your language or choice of
words in the lecture, I thought they were appropriate and helped get the
point across that much more. It is important that we all stand close and
support each other in the hard times and in the good because drugs play a
dirty game. Addiction is a disease, I knew that walking into the lecture, but I
didn’t think one single person could make such a big difference. Thank
I was just at your talk at Eastern Florida. You said to give you an email if
we wanted your e-book, that would be great if I could please get it. I just
wanted to say thank you so much for coming to talk to us and I really wish
everyone in the world could sit and listen to you in person!

Dear Larry Lawton, I sat in at your discussion at the Eastern Florida
Melbourne Campus and I really enjoyed it. I enjoy learning about people’s
past experiences and their life and I thought your presentation was really
eye opening. I’m emailing you to ask about the PDF book that you said we
would able to receive through email and I am very excited to read it
whenever it is possible for you to send it. Have a good afternoon.
I really enjoyed your talk on Monday! It was very motivational and it really
struck the heart for me. You said to email you for a pdf file of your book. If
you could get the chance, I would love to read it!
You are an inspiration to us all! Thank you for everything you do!
