Event description

Description

PEATC is pleased to announce its 5th annual Parent and Youth Empowerment (PYE) Summit which will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg, Virginia. This year's theme is "Share Your Super Power."

The goals of the Summit are to increase parents' capacity to help their children with disabilities improve their secondary school learning and post-secondary outcomes and to increase the capacity of youth to be effective self-advocates.

PEATC views this Summit as an opportunity to provide youth with disabilities and their parents the opportunity to gather valuable information from presentations and exhibitors, to network and to connect with other families. Youth and parents should leave the PYE Summit feeling empowered by the experience.

The Summit will consist of break-out sessions with concurrent tracks per session:

  • Track One is the Self-Advocate Track (for youth with disabilities ages 12 & up)

  • Track Two is the Special Education/Mental Health Track (for parents of youth with disabilities ages 12 to 22)

If you have knowledge and expertise in these topic areas, PEATC encourages you to submit a proposal to participate as a presenter at the 2019 PEATC Parent and Youth Empowerment Summit. We are seeking unique presentations that will provide Summit participants with a wide range of relevant content, innovative ideas, and interesting viewpoints from which to choose.

Speaker proposals submitted for the 2019 Summit are reviewed by the Summit Planning Committee and evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the disability community

  • Originality of material

  • Overall quality of session content

  • Timeliness of topic

  • A well-defined focus

  • Completeness of presentation proposal

  • Appropriate inclusion of partnering organization and/or co-presenters

  • Take-away value for attendees

  • Speaking experience of presenters

** Confirmed presenters will be provided lunch and an exhibit table (if requested). **


PRESENTATION FORMAT: Each break-out session wiill be 60 minutes in length, including time for Q & A. The break-out sessions will run concurrently, so attendees will attend one workshop during each break-out session. Participants are interested in current therapies, professional services, and creative programming. Proposals should be engaging, creative, and offer applicable take-away value to the participants with the target audience being youth with disabilities ages 12 and up and their families. Workshops should not be used as a means of promoting a business or product. Sessions will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

DEADLINE: Proposals must be received by close of business on Thursday, AUGUST 15, 2019.

NOTIFICATION TO PRESENTERS: All submitting proposals will be notified of their proposal status by AUGUST 23, 2019.
