One of the “4 C’s” of diamonds is clarity. Clarity is also important for “diamonds in the rough” – our children and students with special learning needs. When faced with limited time, money and resources, how do we choose the strategies that are more likely to be successful? This year’s Diamonds in the Rough day-long conference will provide guidance and training to give you the tools to sort through your options.
