2013 Conference

2013: 63rd Conference on Exceptional Children

November 20 - November 22, 2013
Koury Convention Center, Sheraton Greensboro Hotel at Four Seasons

Believing in Achieving – it is what exceptional children educators and related service personnel do every day in their classrooms, administrators expect in their program design and oversight, and parents demonstrate when they entrust their children to public schools each morning. This is also the theme of the 63rd Conference on Exceptional Children; North Carolina’s largest gathering of educational professionals and parents of children with disabilities. The Exceptional Children Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is pleased to invite colleagues from across the state to join us for this annual collaborative event to share and learn about innovations and exciting practices to help exceptional children achieve. Please join us for numerous enriching activities: an uplifting Plenary Session with inspiring keynote presentation; more than 90 informative Instructional Sessions covering the broad spectrum of exceptional children education; the annual Teachers of Excellence reception honoring outstanding North Carolina special educators; a Poster Display of innovative programs and practices; the School-Based Enterprise Bazaar showcasing products being created and marketed by North Carolina Public Schools students with disabilities; and an Exhibitor/Vendor area that offers interactions with organizations and companies specializing in serving exceptional children. Come join us in Greensboro for this annual gathering of more than 3,000 professionals and parents, each of whom believes in the achievement and potential of all children.
