Check out what past participants have said:
"This conference helped me understand what it meant to look at everyone’s strengths and gifts rather than deficits. Every year I get new ideas to take back and use both in my job and my community to help push toward true belonging for everyone. Dream on!"
~ Parent and Early Childhood Provider
"It was so encouraging to be surrounded by families and professionals who truly care about all kids. The conference gave me hope for education."
~ Related Service Provider
"Even after attending the inclusion conference for 10 years, each year I come away refreshed, amazed by the depth of information presented and inspired to go back to my community and try new things for increasing the involvement of children and families in their school and home communities. I have seen a radical shift in the way I view my son – he is a capable, contributing, whole person with a future that HE will determine, not the system."
"This conference has made my classroom a much richer environment for ALL my students."
~ General Education Teacher
"I love this conference! I had amazing days filled with important information, and things that I will be able to take back and implement ASAP in my building. This conference convinced me to remain in the field of special education."
~ Special Education Teacher
