Wired Differently / Trauma-Informed Schools Conference
Helping Students Succeed Who Are Wired Differently or Trauma-Impacted
This conference offers a wide array of critical insights and best practices for reaching and teaching students with a variety of emotional and behavioral challenges – especially trauma, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and PTSD. With 1 in 5 students diagnosable for a behavioral or emotional disorder and 1 in 4 students affected by 2 or more ACEs, every classroom is impacted. Principals and other administrators, general ed teachers, special ed teachers, resource teachers, interventionists and paraprofessionals will benefit from tools, recommendations and strategies for working with this often high-potential portion of the student population.
The Wired Differently: Trauma-Informed Schools Conference will be held in 2021 as part of the Innovative Schools Summit Orlando. The Summit assembles internationally recognized innovators together with practicing educators and consultants who are currently finding success with cutting-edge best practices and research-based methodologies in education. These multi-day events provide an opportunity for counselors, teachers, administrators and other educators to learn about new insights and strategies for reaching and teaching students PK-12. In 2021 – 2022, the Summit will be hosted in three great locations (Orlando, New York and Las Vegas), each covering 4 topic-specific National Conferences – providing a unique opportunity for attendees to learn key insights from a broad spectrum of experts and colleagues from around the country
