Transformation by Design: Powerful Possibilities for Supporting Success
Diana J. LaRocco, Ed.D.

What can we, as practitioners, do to reduce unnecessary barriers and design programs and services that support the success of the wide range of variability in the families and children we serve?  How do we transform our practice to improve outcomes for children, their families, and the professionals who serve them?  Participants in this highly interactive workshop will use the Universal Design for Learning framework as a lens for examining their professional practices and transforming them by design.

The Beauty of Adult Rebellion: Why I Rarely Do What I’m Told
Adiba Nelson, BA

As a kid, we do what we’re told – by our parents, by our teachers, by our doctors. I was one of those kids – highly obedient, don’t question authority, respect your elders. But then I gave birth to a child with a disability, and I knew that if I was going to be any type of parent-advocate for her, all of that training had to go out the window. Together we have rebelled against doctors, and teachers (my daughter is making it her life’s work to rebel against ME), and together we are out here living our best lives. Rebellion is sometimes a really REALLY good thing. I’m going to tell you why – and why you should consider it.
