After five years of very successful Teaching Music to Students on the Autism Spectrum conferences, the Berklee Institute for Arts Education and Special Needs (BIAESN) is delighted to announce its new conference, ABLE Assembly: Arts Better the Lives of Everyone.
The ABLE Assembly promises to be an exceptional professional development opportunity in the field of arts education and special needs, bringing together educators, artists, researchers, policymakers, school administrators, program administrators, and students to share best practices, engage in hands-on experiences, explore new research, and learn from each other.
The event will feature presentations and workshops on teaching the arts to students with special needs. Keynote presenters include Sheila Scott, Ph.D.; Stephen Shore, Ed.D.; and Jenna Gabriel, Ed.M. Hands-on workshops will include opportunities to experience teaching strategies and approaches in music, dance, and theater. BIAESN is currently accepting proposals
The conference is open to the public.
Registration fee is $100 and includes admission to all conference sessions and events plus lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
