Recently two of our staff attended the PEAK conference on February 9th and 10th in Denver Colorado. It was a great chance for us to develop strategies for access, equity, and opportunity. There were multiple breakout sessions at this conference and keynote speakers that shared their education and experience in working with children and providing inclusive education.
The conference allowed for our staff to interact with Parent Training Information Centers from multiple states, including Wyoming and South Dakota. We developed a better understanding of what other PTI centers were doing in their state, and we shared with them how we approached our programming in North Dakota.
I have attended many conferences throughout my career and I would say that this was probably the best conference I have ever attended. The information presented and interaction between the speakers and the professionals allowed for an environment of new ideas and information. The PEAK conference was a great experience for the staff that attended and provided us with a plethora of information in regards to Inclusive Education.
