Description: The NCSPA board and Fall Conference Committee invites you to participate in our 2014 Fall Conference in Asheville, NC.
The conference theme this year is Advocating For the Needs of All Students. Whether you want to learn about the DSM-5, WJ-IV, WISC-V, crisis incident training, MTSS implementation and assessment, or case law, there are workshops for you! This value priced conference will provide you with tools you can use today, and up to 16 Continuing Education (CE) units.
This year we have reformatted the sessions. On Sunday, you will now be able to attend up to two of four available sessions (morning and afternoon sessions) instead of one day long session.
The program for this year's conference was built around the North Carolina standards for professional practice and the Performance Appraisal Instrument (PAI). We have sessions relevant for practitioners serving children across all levels, from preschool on up, across tiers, for academics, behavior, emotional skills, as well as on issues of professional and ethical interest to our colleagues.
The full conference includes a full day of workshops and, half-day of workshops morning, advocacy reception, student reception, the NCSPA banquet, raffle and reception, membership meeting, and a conference notebook... not to mention at least two and one half days of professional networking and fun! Bring your laptop and/or tablet so you can download the handouts directly; we encourage you to download the handouts before the conference so as not to be burden the limited wifi.
Since we do not work in isolation in our schools or practice, we encourage you to invite your colleagues! Your fellow school counselors, social workers, SST coordinators, preschool teams, RtI coaches, intervention coordinators, and IRTs would benefit, too!
