Britt Henderson Virtual Training Series for Educators: Practical Evidence-Based Strategies to Improve Instruction for Students with Diverse Learning Needs
What is Tennessee Disability Pathfinder?
Tuesday, March 28, 5:30-7:30 p.m. CT

This annual series of workshops provides training for school teams that include both general and special educators. Workshops focus on innovative evidence-based practices to improve the quality of education for students with diverse learning needs. Founded in 1996, the Britt Henderson Training Series is made possible at no cost to participating schools through an endowment from the Robert and Carol Henderson family in memory of their son Britt.

Individuals and school teams are welcome to attend. When possible, school teams (e.g., general and special educators, behavior specialists, counselors, school administrators) are encouraged to attend. Participation is open to public and private schools, as well as community organizations and community members.
