>The PEAK Conference on Inclusion is scheduled for February 14-18, 2008, Valentines Day Weekend.
>The conference has several sessions for self advocates.
>The conference is usually geared toward general and special education teachers and administrators.
>Continuing education credits are given for teachers who register.
>Scholarships are given by CDE to parent and staff teams who attend together.
>Unfortunately CDE never seems to give away all the money they have set
>aside. There is a perception that the conference is only for special
>education teachers, so there needs to be an adverting push to reach out
>to staff, parents and individuals who haven’t heard about how good this
>local conference is for everyone.
>Below is the contact information for scholarship applications for the PEAK Conference on Inclusive Education.
> Visit www.peakparent.org for more information. The mission of PEAK Parent Center is to provide training, information and technical assistance to equip families of children birth through twenty-six including all disability conditions with strategies to advocate successfully for their children.
