Saturday, October 28
Country Inn & Suites Conference Center, Lincoln
INCLUSION in 3D will address a critical need for educators and parents to look differently in their collaboration toward successful school experiences for students with Down syndrome. DSAF has secured national author, speaker, and inclusion expert Paula Kluth to drive the overall focus of the day, including a full morning keynote and afternoon breakout sessions for parents and teachers.
Additional speakers are being engaged to augment our Keynote's main track, including behavior and smartphone/tablet apps to social and community educational program information. Guests will enjoy a conversational lunch session with a self-advocate.
DSAF is committed to providing parents and educators the best tools and resources to support and teach children with special needs. Paula Kluth provides exceptinal expertise regarding Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a key precept in making school inclusion successful.
