Educators working with Special Student Populations:

Unlock a new world of learning.

You are a fierce advocate. You work hard to develop plans and provide accommodations, differentiation, intervention, and special education services to support your students’ learning. Not only that, but you also partner with parents, guardians, teachers, and other staff to ensure students’ education rights are being upheld in equitable and inclusive ways. Your work is meaningful, and it’s not easy. We want to connect you with current, research-based tools, strategies, and resources to promote your work and positively impact your students.

“I was able to make contact with other session attendees afterward to bounce ideas off of each other. In the current climate, to be able to connect with others in this way, was a gift.”  -Aimee

You Pick Your Sessions

Learning. Lots of it.

With hundreds of sessions to choose from, you’ll expand your learning and grow your expertise. It’s not all about quantity, though. Quality matters! That’s why we provide research-based, data-driven sessions led by experts in the field. Attend sessions. Implement solutions. Get results. And you choose which sessions to attend based on your goals and interests.

Here are just a few of the many sessions specifically designed for those working with special populations:

  • Set Sail: Capture More Than the Moment and Set a Course for Student 
  • Empowering Student Voice and Emphasizing Strengths in Elementary Grades
  • Tools for SPED and EL Students: All in Your TexQuest Toolbox
  • Explore Social-Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, and Mindful Movement
  • Intuitive, Inclusive, Adaptable: Putting the Joy Back in Learning with the Lego Education Continuum
  • Bringing the “Balance” to Technology Stations

Whether you are attending all four days of the convention or packing as much learning as possible into just a few, your time at the 2022 TCEA Convention & Exposition will be filled with innovative presentations, incredible opportunities for connection, and valuable experiences. Plus, this year we are offering two distinct online session packages focusing on Bridging the Learning Gap and Social-Emotional Learning that you can watch through March 11.
