Every child matters
Beat the heat is a professional development conference for educators, parents, and others who work with children ages 3 – 21 with significant intellectual and low incidence disabilities.
Our committee has spent hours identifying pertinent topics and assembling a lineup of qualified speakers so you can take away strategies, ideas, and new contacts to help you grow and make sure every child matters.
