Several staff and board members of STEP attended the “Shared Outcomes Technical Assistance Center Conference” in Charleston, South Carolina on June 23-25, 2015.
This annual conference, required by the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs for federally funded Parent Centers, provides an opportunity for Parent Center staff to increase their knowledge base and skill set to meet the training and information needs of families and youth.
We also made an emotional visit to pay our respects at Mother Emmanuel Church while in Charleston.
We shared our knowledge through presentations at the conference and came back with all sorts of great information that we'll be incorporating into workshops and other outlets this year. Click here to read more.
