Given the events of the past year, our conference is going to be a little bit different this year. The first big change is that all sessions are focused on supporting parents and caregivers. In addition to providing information on special education regulations and how to advocate for your student, we will also shine a light on those areas where disability and race intersect: school-to-prison pipeline, restraints and seclusion, systemic racism in public institutions. Throughout the event, we will be celebrating our journeys and promoting self-care.
December 6-December 11th, Opening session Sunday evening, three sessions daily with breaks in between
First 200 registrations receive conference amenities.
