SENIA 2020 is a chance to learn and network with other special education and learning support teachers from around the world. We will have Jessica Minahan as our featured presenter with a focus on how to address behavioral concerns by addressing the underlying reasons that children display unexpected behaviors in school.
Also, Bonnie Singer will be presenting on her EmPOWER writing method and the Brain Frame graphic organizers that support children's planning stage of the writing process. We are also lucky to have Norm Kunc and Emma Van der Klift who are well-known speakers and advocates within the disability rights community, they prefer to think of themselves as modern-day storytellers, continuing the long-held tradition of using humor and narrative to initiate self-reflection and social change. Their presentations are enlighting and motivational.
Additionally, we will have Phil Bowman, the founder of the MARIO Framework presenting his framework that provides a free and flexible framework that allows any teacher to create a learning support classroom that is built around one-on-one learning. Finally, we will have Lori Boll and Priscilla Leighton that will be facilitating an Executive Functioning Toolbox creation session that by the end of the conference will be fully stock with strategies and resources that can be used to help students with executive functioning difficulties.
