RTSC’s 8th Annual Making a Difference Conference for SESPs, Foster/Adoptive and Kinship Caregivers and their Professional Partners

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 8:00am – 4:00pm (Registration 7:00-8:15am)


Making a Difference is RTSC’s annual statewide conference that presents a range of topics related to the education and support of some of the most vulnerable students in the state. The theme this year is Navigating the Special Education Process with a Trauma Lens. This conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to learn and network with each other, child welfare professionals, and RTSC staff. It also provides an opportunity for us to acknowledge and show appreciation for dedicated support provided by our SESP volunteers and others. 

Keynote Speaker: Steve Pemberton
