View the 2015 Program and Workshops
Each year Cotting School offers a full day of learning for parents and caregivers of students with disabilities and interested professionals. Through the support of a generous donor, attendees can participate in sessions, visit with vendors and network over a light lunch free of charge.
A variety of evidence-based, practical strategies will be shared at presentations, hands-on sessions and discussions throughout the day. In addition, vendors’ exhibits provide the opportunity to explore technology, services, and equipment.
Another highlight of our conference will be a robust vendor and resource fair in the Cotting School gymnasium with over 30 exhibitors and information tables, some staffed by our very own technology experts from Cotting School!
We invite you to save the date of Saturday, November 14, 2015 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm for this year’s conference! We are thankful for a generous donation from the Burr Family, which makes this conference free and fully accessible.
Full conference information and workshop descriptions will soon be posted later this fall on our website at www.cotting.org/MTP. If you would like further information, please follow us on social media or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Setting the Stage for Transition Success
Transition and technology are the starring pair in this two act session. In Act 1, Kelley will focus on the research-based factors that impact success in postsecondary life for young adults with disabilities, including self-awareness/self-determination, goal-setting and emotional coping strategies. Act 2 brings Karen’s demonstration of iOS and web-based technology tools for putting these proven strategies on center stage.
Presenters: Kelley Challen, Ed.M.; CAS, NESCA and Karen Waddill, M.A., CCC-SLP ATP; Cotting Consulting
