Our 2020 Inspiration to Action Symposium celebrates the inclusive vision of education through the lens of individuals who continually strive for systemic improvements in special education. The event showcases prominent leaders in special education, each possessing a distinct perspective as either an educator, parent, or student navigating the educational system. This collective gathering of perspectives aligns with the statewide focus on establishing one coherent system of education in which all children receive the education and supports needed to maximize their development and potential.

Engaging breakout sessions provide participants with implementation resources and tools. The 2020 Inspiration to Action Symposium showcases an invaluable opportunity to magnify our perspective, to zoom in on best practices, amplify what is working, and clarify the opportunity we all possess to initiate meaningful change for all students.
