Fall Midwest 2018 Conference Confirmed

MTSS and Diversity: Trauma-Informed, Evidence-Based Practices for One and All!

We have confirmed that we will be doing a variation of our recent 2-Day MTSS Conference we held in May. We hosted 400 educators from across the Midwest, with most from the Chicago area. Our waiting list was over 100.

We will be offering a variation of our original conference, where the nuts and bolts of MTSS practice will be offered in Breakout Sessions with Keynotes on new and important topics.  Our theme will be MTSS and Diversity, with careful attention to Evidence-Based Interventions WITHIN Trauma-Informed Practices. Keynotes will be by noted authorities on Trauma-Informed Practices (Dr. Clayton Cook), Diversity and Teams/Teaming (Drs. Alisia Moutrey and Ramar Smith), English Learners (Drs. Doris Baker and Scott Baker) and Special Education Law (Dr. Perry Zirkel).

We are fleshing out our Brochure, which we hope to have completed soon. A $25 per person discount will be offered to our previous attendees.

Hold the date and stay in touch.

New Orleans

April 11th and 12th, 2019

We are beginning the planning process for our 5th annual MTSS/RTI Conference in New Orleans. Again, our themes will be "something old" so that early implementation interests are addressed (as well as providing a booster shot for schools farther along) as well as "something new" so that there is always something more to learn. Stay in touch.
