Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence in TA: Reflecting on the Wisdom of the Past
Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute
About this talk
Beginning with the ground-breaking work that Pascal “Pat” Trohanis started in 1971, the Trohanis Technical Assistance (TA) Projects continue to educate and support state systems with implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Our first webinar will kick off with keynote speaker Judy Heumann, a lifelong disability rights activist who served as Assistant Secretary of Education for Special Education and Rehabilitative Services during the Clinton administration. Remarks from Judy Heumann will be followed by a national panel discussing the history and evolution of TA to support young children with disabilities and their families.
