The Combined ESL, Special Needs and Technology Conference is held annually. Delegates have the opportunity to listen to speakers address major issues in the fields of ESL, special education and technology, as well as to attend extended break-outs session addressing specific topics. By combining the special needs and technology conferences, pre K-12 teachers, counselor's, technology specialists and administrators will be able to explore in depth the crossover and connections between the two fields. Conference delegates also have the opportunity to enjoy the cultural and historical richness of the host city.
