Is Special Education Special Anymore?: The New Role in Special Education in this area of disruptive school reform

This years conference will be held from October 1-4, 2014 in Boise, Idaho. As more specifics become available on location and other speakers we will update this page.

Dr. Stevan Kukic, Director of School Transformation for the National Center for Learning Disabilities

Dr. Kukic will be presenting on how special education fits in with all the new mandates. From PL 94-142 to NCLB to the latest reauthorization of IDEA in 2004, the nation has set its commitment to students with disabilities. Really? Are IEPs used to guide the development of lesson plans? Are special educators the reading experts they must be in our schools? Is special education at the RTI table, helping each school district build its Multi Tier System of Supports? Is special education becoming a victim of of its separate mandate? What is the role of special education in this world of disruption, tightening budgets, ever increasing lawsuits, lack of commitment to evidence based practice? We can react or we can work together to invent a better future for students with special needs. It is our choice.
