DDD at CEC:  Highlights from our Sessions

Dagny Fidler
President Elect

Baltimore CEC convention was a huge success. People were very excited about the presentations they attended. DDD had three excellent presentations that you will hear more about in upcoming issues of the DDD Express but here is a summary.

Dr. Liliana Mayo , Director of the Centro Ann Sullivan Program (CASP) in Lima, Peru presented her program serving students from birth to adulthood. She trains teachers from all over the world in best practice approaches involving classroom instruction, inclusion, vocational programming, and parent training. CASP is truly a world class program worth learning about.

One of our invited sessions was given by Marty Murphy , a self-advocate with autism. Marty gave a very insightful presentation that included her experiences throughout her school career and in her various jobs. She was a delightful presenter who had beneficial pointers for teachers.

Our last invited session was presented by Laura Krueger , PT, and Mary Sullivan-Coleman , OTR. Their Play and Learn curriculum for early childhood education is an excellent approach for integration of motor, communication and social skills into the learning environment. This is a must-see for anyone working with young children.

As we get ready for the next convention, please let us know what you would like to see. We will begin planning very soon. So, get your requests to us. We look forward to another great convention and hope to see many of you there. Also, a reminder that it is never too early to start planning to submit a paper to present at CEC in Louisville, KY (April 18-21, 2007) and at the DDD 10th Biennial Conference in  Kona, Hawaii (Jan. 31- Feb. 3, 2007).
