had tables with a focus on acceleration, Colorados budget crisis, nurturing
the health and well-being of your child and family, organizational strategies
for students, encouraging student self-advocacy, and understanding and managing
twice-exceptional behaviors. This year will provide an equally impressive range
of topics from which you can choose.
