CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

The good, the bad, and the confused: Parents experiences of accessing special education services for their children with disabilities

Inclusion in the regular classroom for students with disabilities is viewed as important for equality in education. Alberta Education provides resources for teachers on how to collaborate with parents and how to provide quality supports and accommodations for students. Educators work hard to support students, yet we know little about how parents in Alberta perceive the process of accessing supports and the school-home collaboration. We interviewed parents of school-aged children about their experience of accessing special education services to find out what is working, what is not working, what would help parents during the process. The goal of this session is to share the parent perspective.
