2019 Diamonds in the Rough Conference
Change is inevitable.
It's how we PLAN, ADJUST, and THRIVE that ultimately matters.
We are excited that this year’s event is a two day conference consisting of a half-day CE Workshop on Friday, April 12th and full day conference on Saturday, April 13th.
This year's conference theme is Parenting Children with Special Needs: Preparing to Launch at Every Age.
The 9th Annual Diamonds in the Rough Conference will place a special focus on the skills and supports students need to successfully launch at each educational stage.
For parents raising a child with special educational needs, even small changes can feel big. Growing in confidence and hope, thinking farther out, and developing plans for a child’s future becomes crucial as children age and mature.
The Diamonds Conference is a unique event at which parents, advocates, and professionals learn, connect, and share, with the goal of empowering children and ultimately launching them to becoming independent adults.
Weinfeld Education Group has invited expert speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors as part of a learning community to help families navigate effectively through these major life changes.
