EASE 2018: Partnership For Inclusion with Broward County Schools

Our PEN, Parent Education Network, Parent Training and Information Center for the 10 most southern counties of Florida, joined Broward County Schools as a partner for the #ESEA Conference 2018, Educating All Students with Excellence, with a focus on Inclusion. The event was greatly successful and reunited more than 800 people among parents and professionals. Lederick Horne and Dr. Frances Stetson were the keynotes for the event. Horne inspired participants through his inspirational story and passion for poetry while Dr. Stetson shared important strategies for inclusion for people with disabilities.

Family Network with Disabilities was honored to amplify the event through social media for those unable to participate in person. In a couple of days, the different workshops reached more than 60,000 views online through the Family Network on Disabilities Facebook Page. This is a great collection that can be used for educational purposes and training throughout the year.

Because the event was a celebration of diversity, parents, professionals, and self-advocates presented from different perspectives and backgrounds.
