IDEA Leadership Conference

Guam Delegation
As an Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) Chairperson/parent member, I have gained much knowledge from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)/IDEA Leadership Conference that was held in Washington D.C. from July 28–31, 2013. The conference theme, Building Bridges: Fostering Innovative Leadership & Learning, is an instrumental one with the ongoing needs that children of disabilities and their families face and the apparent need for us to work collaboratively together. My journey to and experience at the 2013 IDEA Leadership Conference was indeed significant and educational. I was able to attend different workshops with my fellow ICC members, parents, and SPED personnel who were all part of the Guam Delegation. Our participation was meaningful and well worth the time and effort, as there is much we can share with our fellow ICC members/parents/teachers.
