Keynote Speakers

Mike Remus
Mike's keynote presentation will focus on crucial conversations & issues that must be addressed in order to move inclusion forward & embrace great expectations for All. Mike’s follow-up forum will provide questions & activities for IEP teams to consider when writing IEP’s, so that the IEP’s are meaningful and implemented during the natural part of the day.

Katherine & Ben Perreth
After Ben experienced a massive brain hemorrhage at age 7, he and his family were changed forever – and so were the myriad educational professionals involved in the process of educating and supporting Ben.  Katherine and Ben will bring us their humorous, informational and entertaining brand of hope and inspiration as they present aspects of Katherine’s award-winning book, Making Lemonade With Ben: The Audacity to Cope.

"I have been impressed with every aspect of the program including the environment, the guest speakers, the opportunity to network, and the overall organization for the past five years and highly recommend this program for all educators and parents of children with special needs."
- Jackie Paullin, Genesee Lake School

"I am a third grade teacher and have attended the Inclusion Conference for several years. I look forward to the conference every year because I always leave with ideas that I can implement immediately. I have gained a wealth of knowledge that helps me to better work with and understand all students, not just students with special needs." 
- Mary Wudtke, 3rd Grade Bonduel Elementary School
