This year's conference is built on major strands of:

In response to COVID-19 impact we will be holding virtual Special Education conferences this fall and spring rather than a three-day fall conference. Registered participants will receive an invitation to use the event app seven (7) days prior to the conference. This will allow participants to pre-select their sessions.
