2018 AASE National Conference
SUNDAY 8th - tuesday 10th july, 2018 | cairns Convention Centre, CAIRNS, Queensland

Conference Welcome

On behalf of AASE Qld, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2018 Australian Association of Special Education National Conference ‘Creating Connections: Developing Personal and Social Capabilities’.

We’re very excited to offer a program that features a strong focus on families.  We invite family members of students with a disability to present, participate and provide their insights into how schools can foster strong connections with families.

The Conference aims to provide participants the opportunity to listen, share and learn from a range of exceptional keynote speakers, invited guests and concurrent presenters. We anticipate this year’s conference will challenge participants to think about and reflect on how we create connections with students, families, and staff.  We also encourage participants to consider how we can better facilitate connectedness through the Australian Curriculum for the range of diverse learners in our schools.

The AASE Qld Conference Committee hope that the 2018 conference will exceed expectations and provide all participants with a high quality learning experience.

We invite you to join us in beautiful Cairns from Sunday evening 8 July to Tuesday 10 July and look forward to creating connections with you.

AASE Qld President
