PresenceLearning Launches New Winter-Spring 2017 Webinar Series Focused on Big Ideas for Transformation in Special Education

New series lifts off Tuesday, February 14, 2017 with scholar, author, and speaker Dr. Lori Desautels providing insights about educational neuroscience and its application to students with special needs

SAN FRANCISCO, January 5, 2017 – PresenceLearning, creator of the leading network of teletherapy providers in education, is launching a free, three-part webinar series for special education leaders and clinicians focused on big, new ideas that can positively impact student development, outcomes, and long term success.

For the first webinar on February 14, 2017, scholar, author, and speaker Dr. Lori Desautels will provide valuable insight about educational neuroscience and recognition of our schools as living systems. She’ll illuminate how and why educators, clinicians, and administrators must care for their own brains and hearts to bring about big change.

Next up on March 30, 2017 will be disability advocate, author, poet, and consultant LeDerick Horne who, along with researcher Dr. Margo Izzo, will inspire educational leaders to foster pride and empowerment in students with hidden disabilities, particularly those with ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, and emotional and behavioral disturbance.

Finally, on May 6, 2017, Dr. Randy Sprick, an educational consultant, trainer and author who always surprises and delights his audiences, will unpack the STOIC framework, a really big idea for improving student behavior.
