State Support Team Region 6 works with schools and families in Allen, Auglaize, Champaign, Hardin, Logan, Mercer, and Shelby counties. The purpose of the Region 6 Best Practices Showcase is to recognize schools that are making a positive difference in academics for kids. We have invited our schools to share practices that have proven successful.
The morning will begin with the Walter Horn awards presentation to recognize exemplary special education students and those who support them in the classroom.
Dr. Peg Dawson, our special keynote speaker, focuses on executive functioning which is a set of skills like paying attention, organizing, regulating emotions, multi-tasking and solving problems independently. This comes from her book series, “Smart But Scattered.”
We want participants to leave with:
successful inclusive practices they’ve learned from each other that will increase achievement for students identified with a disability.
a new network of peers they can continue to collaborate with on classroom practices that work within our Region.
connections to local agencies that can help support students and families.
