Virtual National Conference (February 2023)

Currently, it can be incredibly hard to get the attention of practitioners, families, and leaders. Once you have their attention, is your training and coaching maximized; is it having the desired impact? Are you improving fidelity and outcomes?

The conference helped participants push boundaries, break barriers, and improve results for children with disabilities by giving you “A New Perspective”.


Participants will learn how to:

  • Make strong connections and build relationships to support success for children with disabilities.
  • Tell your project’s story in a way that assists with recruitment, uptake, and spread.
  • Provide professional learning that is effective and makes a lasting impression.
