International Association of Special Education 13th Biennial Conference

by Diane Twait Nelsen

I am honored to be at the International Association of Special Education 13th Biennial Conference today in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada!  It is a beautiful city and I am staying on the campus of the University of British Columbia and those of you who know me know that I love being on college campuses and this one is unbelievable!  Mountains behind you and the ocean in front of you!  I am here with two dear friends  and respected former colleagues Dr. Elizabeth Ankeny of Augsburg College in Minneapolis and  Helen Beneke of Morningside College in Iowa.  We are co-presenting on “Transition Planning: ” The Scoop from Pre-Service Perspective to In-Service Training”.   Although this is not an Prairie Lakes Area Education Agency sponsored trip, it is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so honored that they included me is this adventure and I am sure that I will bring back ideas and network connections that will be valuable for our transition work at Prairie Lakes!   This is a wonderful culturally diverse conference with presenters and participants from over 60 countries involved.  What a learning opportunity and I hope to blog/share more about presentations as the week goes by!  Diane Twait Nelsen-Prairie Lakes AEA Transition Chairperson

    It’s an ideal way to reevaluate your life and strengthen vigorousness.
    Many people report feeling more clear-headed and better able to
    focus on any types of tasks because they feel more energized.
    We need to include these fantastic fruits and vegetables
    in our routine and use one or two every day.
