By · September 25, 2010 · Filed in Assistive Technology, Marketing, Special Needs Kids

On Friday, October 1st, I will be speaking at the 6th Annual National Conference on Inclusion in San Diego, California.

Kids Included Together’s 6th Annual National Conference on Inclusion will feature exciting new skill-building workshops given by practitioners in the field, passionate presentations featuring speakers and performers and opportunities to network with others who are interested in creating and sustaining inclusive programs.

After the Bell Rings: Innovative Strategies for Including All Children in Out-of-School Time Programs will feature 20 break-out sessions for all levels of practitioner. Those new to inclusion will find a strand of building blocks designed to provide the tools necessary to get started. Staff working directly with children will gain practical techniques and fun new activities to implement immediately. Managers and directors will find workshops on new models, linkages with the school day and universal design. All will leave inspired and invigorated!

The 2010 KIT conference will utilize a variety of technology tools to provide information, social networking and opportunities to extend the experience beyond the conference.

In my general session, I will share new forms of assistive technology that are both available and easy to implement for out-of-school time programs.  In my second session, “Social Media for Non-Profits / Fundraising 2.0,” attendees will come out of this session understanding what the basic tools are for social media and social networking.  In addition, they will have an understanding on how to setup their own accounts within these platforms and how to utilize these tools for their non-profits and organizations.  The second part of this session will explore and explain Fundraising 2.0 and how to utilize strategies for their organizations’ benefit.

This will be an exciting conference.  For more information, visit http://www.kitconference.org
