2017: 67th Conference on Exceptional Children

November 15 – 17, 2017
Koury Convention Center, Sheraton Greensboro Hotel at Four Seasons

The Exceptional Children Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, through its strategic plan, is committed to increasing the performance of students with disabilities, thereby enhancing their ability to graduate and achieve productive post-secondary outcomes. It is critical that all who have a stake in impacting the lives of our students – parents/families, special education teachers, related service personnel, psychologists, regular education teachers, administrators – collaborate to help them thrive each day and into the future.

Prescriptive Instruction: The Key to Proficiency is the theme of the 67th Conference on Exceptional Children, North Carolina’s largest gathering of educational professionals and parents of children with disabilities. The Exceptional Children Division is pleased to invite colleagues from across the state to join us for this annual synergistic 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 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 School students with disabilities, and an Exhibitor/Vendor area that offers interactions with organizations and companies specializing in serving exceptional children. Come be an integral part of this annual gathering in Greensboro of more than 3,000 professionals and parents, all working together to improve educational outcomes for all students!
