Special Education Symposium

Trusted Special Education legal information, attended by Special Education practitioners throughout the state.

This popular professional development activity attracts hundreds of educational professionals from across the state each year. Designed to keep special education practitioners current on the legal parameters that shape their work, the SES helps provide clarity on special education legal expectations so that resources can be focused on student needs. All topics are delivered by F3 attorneys, leaders in special education law and widely regarded to be among the best and most-informed, practical presenters in the industry.

"I strongly encourage my colleagues to attend the Symposium. This is an excellent investment in professional development and professional excellence for your organization, one I would never miss!"
