Every year, SpEdConnecticut gathers some of the most admired professionals in their fields to speak about special education law and practices. This year our presenters will be speaking via Webinars. Please see the list of our presenters below. If you cannot make the presentation most will be recorded for you to access. The only presentation that has to be attended live is the Developmental Language and Communication Disorders due to its interactive nature. All presentations will allow for a question/answer period at the end where participants can ask questions.
