CESD provides child-centered disability law training for public schools.

The primary role of the Council of Educators is to provide public educators with quality training events on disability law issues. Each fall, we hold a conference on Section 504 and a Dyslexia Conference addressing the Texas Dyslexia law. Both of these 2024 events will be held virtually and in person at the DoubleTree Hotel Austin.

Both 2024 CESD Conferences are Hybrid:  Choose to Attend in Person at the DoubleTree by Hilton Austin OR Attend Virtually from Anywhere. Either way, you get the best of both worlds.

When conference time rolls around in the Fall, we look forward to seeing in person or virtually. It's entirely up to you.

If you have never attended a CESD Conference, you’ve missed a lot. Speakers are chosen from attorneys and practitioners who know their stuff (and can entertain as well as inform). This year the Fall 504 Conference and the Dyslexia Conference will be held at the DoubleTree Austin.  Both events will be available virtually during a lengthy conference window beginning two weeks following in-person conference.

Want training entirely personalized for you and your colleagues?  We can do that.
