We hope you can join us in July, 2014, in beautiful Vail, Colorado, for another valuable institute sponsored by the Bresnahan-Halstead Center at the University of Northern Colorado.
The Bresnahan-Halstead Center is committed to work for the advancement of knowledge and quality services for people with disabilities through research, professional development, partnership/technical assistance, and scholarships. As part of this mission, the Center is committed to assisting not only professionals who work with students with disabilities but also families of these individuals to expand their knowledge and skills in their work with them. Because the ultimate goal of the Center is to improve the academic, social, emotional, and vocational outcomes of individuals with disabilities, we have made funding available to professionals and families to plan, organize, deliver, and evaluate professional development experiences.
