The 2012 OSEP Leadership Conference will be held from July 30-August 1, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.  Susan Edelman, Vermont Sensory Access Project Director will be co-presenting a session on the use of technology for technical assistance.

The session is entitled: From Deliberate to Dynamic: How TA Projects are Using Technology to Increase Efficiency, Improve Outcomes, and Transform Service Delivery. Presenters: D. Jay Gense, Director, National Consortium on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB), OR; Jon Harding, TA Liaison, NCDB, KS; Susan Edelman, Director, Vermont Deaf-Blind Project, VT; Kathee Scoggin, Co-Director, Washington Deaf-Blind Project, WA

This session will outline innovative technical assistance (TA) models that fundamentally alter how services are delivered to teachers working with complex children. These models can be adapted to meet the needs of teachers working with children with all exceptionalities, and offer a promising approach to improving child outcomes. Educational leaders need Technical Assistance partners willing to take bold actions to increase teacher effectiveness, improve practices, and help all children succeed in their school communities.
