The Children’s Center for Communication and Development, in conjunction with the Office of Professional Development and Educational Outreach, will host a one-day conference “Exceptional Learners, Exceptional Instruction” on Nov. 9 at the Thad Cochran Center on The University of Southern Mississippi campus.

The conference is designed for speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, special instructors and early interventionists. Registration and check-in is scheduled for 7:30-8 a.m. with the series to conclude at 3:30 p.m.

A team of experts will lead informative, interactive sessions while examining a transdisciplinary approach to providing educational instruction in the home, school and community.

“The Children’s Center has been serving Mississippi’s infants, toddlers and preschoolers with disabilities and their families for almost forty years,” said Center Director Cindy Bivins. “This conference is designed to share our transdisciplinary team’s knowledge, insight and experience with our early intervention colleagues from across the state in the hope that professionals, students and families can benefit from what we’ve learned working together.”

The cost is $100 and the conference is approved for 0.7 continuing education units. CEUs are an additional $20.
