WPU Education Students Participate in North Carolina Council for Exceptional Children Annual Conference
William Peace University dual-license education students traveled to Wilmington, NC for the North Carolina Council for Exceptional Children Annual Conference this past month. Students participated in various workshops throughout the three-day conference, where they learned about cutting-edge research, programs, and strategies for teaching students with disabilities.
Other sessions included topics covering collaboration, cross-cultural perspectives of disability, executive-function strategies, motivation, effective storytelling, dyslexia, autism, digital literacy, and much more. WPU students were also able to network with other students and education professionals from across the state.
“I was immensely proud to attend this conference with our enthusiastic and highly engaged students. They made the most of every minute,” said Dr. Amanda Bock, Assistant Professor of Special Education at WPU. “Peace students were also the first to volunteer during activities, and never hesitated to ask questions. They were so excited to share with one another what they had gained during their various sessions.”
CEC advocates for appropriate governmental policies, sets professional standards, provides continual professional development, and advocates for newly and historically under served individuals with exceptionalities. CEC also helps professionals obtain the conditions and resources necessary for effective professional practice. Dr. Bock serves as Vice President for the North Carolina chapter.
