Special-needs conference offers half-time option

Posted on February 15, 2012

For those who can't get away for five days or want to cut costs, a half-time option is now available for the Transporting Students With Disabilities & Preschoolers conference.

The offer is exclusive to those who register online between Feb. 15 and Feb. 29. The half-time rate is $350.

Edupro Group President Roseann Schwaderer noted that the option allows attendees to save on lodging costs while still getting the chance to network with colleagues and the conference's experts. Half-time attendees can go to conference sessions on Monday, Tuesday (which includes lunch during the exhibition) and Wednesday morning.

"Whether you opt for full or half time, come ready to learn as you network with the conference tenured faculty, national advisory board members and other distinguished presenters," Schwaderer said.

To register for the 21st National Conference & Exhibition on Transporting Students With Disabilities & Preschoolers, to be held March 9-14 in Orlando, Fla., go to www.eduprogroup.com and click the "Register Online Now" button.
