Overview

Each year, thanks to a generous donation from the Burr Family, Cotting School offers a free, full day of learning for professionals, parents, and caregivers of students with disabilities.  Through the support of a generous donor, attendees can participate in sessions, visit with vendors and network over a light lunch free of charge. The Conference focuses on a different theme each year and offers a variety of evidence-based, practical strategies to attendees via presentations, hands-on sessions and discussions throughout the day. In addition, vendors’ exhibits provide the opportunity for participants to explore programs, services and equipment. We hope you will plan to join us! Registration information and conference details will be posted at www.cotting.org and communicated via Cotting’s social media.
