Julie Mickel, Amanda Robins, and Lisa Spurlock have been accepted to present at the Partners in Education Conference, Feb. 6–8 in Nashville.
The presentation is titled Inclusion: The Journey of Two Children. “We will follow the path of two Siskin Early Learning Center children and explore what a day in an inclusive environment looks like,” said Ms. Mickel, Siskin Early Learning Center director. “The presentation will explain what therapy services look like in an inclusive environment, explore how to embed functional individualized education program goals into daily classroom routines, and how to write functional goals that are age-appropriate and meaningful to the child and family.”
Joining Ms. Mickel in the presentation will be Amanda Robins, Siskin Early Learning Center education coordinator, and Lisa Spurlock, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger physical therapy assistant and Siskin Early Learning Center provider.
