full day conference with the theme: “Empowerment and Partnership” on this April 17th 2018


***Registration deadline extended to Thursday, April 12, 2018 by 4pm***

Hello everyone,

*** We apologize for the short notice. The deadline to register is on April 10th, 2018. The conference is originally intended for parents and professionals working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing students but we have the space for more attendees and would like to extend the invitation for the Deaf community and others to join us. Please read below for more information about our conference. You can come for part of the day and the cost of the conference remains the same, $50. Lunch is included.

We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting a full day conference with the theme: “Empowerment and Partnership” on this April 17th 2018. It will be open to everyone, including Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Speech and Language Pathologists, parents, Sign Language interpreters, and other professionals working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. In the past, the conference is only for DHH itinerant teachers but this year our school district team wanted an open invitation to everyone to join us. This year we have Drisana Levitzke-Gray a Deaf advocate who is a recipient of the 2015 Young Australian of the Year Award and WA Young Australian of the Year Award, coming to present at our conference. We will also have Gael Hannan who is hard of hearing and a comedian as presenter and share her humorous stories about being hard of hearing in daily life. Dan Pacioretti will also share the latest assistive technology with us as well.

The registration is now open for Empowerment and Partnerships Conference. Please see attached for the flyer and the website for more information and registration. Website and registration link:http://www.popdhh.ca/dhhcw/education-day-dhhcw/education-day-teachers
