Registration is now open for the
13th Annual Educators Forum

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA


The theme of this year's conference is "Best Practices in Inclusive Education - Preparing ALL Students for a Fulfilling Future."

375 educators, administrators, paraprofessionals, relate service providers and other education professionals, and family members will come together on the campus of Holy Cross College to discuss and learn about innovations and insights into making schools more accepting and inclusive for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

This year we will welcome Dr. David A. Koppenhaver - Professor of Reading Education and Special Education at Appalachian State University - as our Keynote Speaker, and Daniel Gill and Daniel Rej of Wakefield High School as our Self-Advocate Keynote Speakers.

We are thrilled that teachers will be able to learn together at the conference and take back to their classrooms a wealth of information, making schools better equipped to serve all their students and overcome roadblocks to creating an inclusive education.

In the spirit of collaboration and inclusion, we value various districts coming together to learn, build capacity and ultimately enhance and improve the educational experiences of all students!
