9 am to 2 pm
Library, DS Mackenzie Junior High School
4020-106 Street, Edmonton, Alberta
Kathryn Burke has been very active in her efforts to enhance understanding about the many issues that impact families with children with exceptional learning needs and the teachers who are entrusted to teach these students. She is a respected author and speaker. She is frequently invited to speak on special education issues and advocacy on radio and television.
Kathryn will now be conducting workshops on a subject which is one in which she passionately believes: Preventing Conflict in Special Education.
Special education is one of the most conflict ridden areas of the education system. The sources of conflict are varied. But what is clear is that conflict can negatively impact the relationships between parents and the school. It can also negatively impact a child’s education outcomes. This session will explore the sources of conflict in special education. It will provide practical strategies for transforming differences into something that helps to build rather than destroy home-school relationships.
Who Should Attend?
This session will be of interest to parents, teachers, teaching assistants, school administrators, consultants, and health providers working in the field of education.
Cost: $40.00 per registrant.
Note: In order to keep costs as low as possible, this event will not include lunch or catering. Participants are invited to bring their own coffee, beverages or lunches. Lunches may be purchased at venues immediately across the street for those not wishing to brown bag it.
