Conference brings autism education to Nebraska teachers

Posted: Updated:

Teachers from across the panhandle didn't take Presidents Day off, instead they spent it bettering their teaching skills.

Educational Service Unit 13 hosted the seminar at the Scottsbluff High School Auditorium.

1,200 teachers from 11 different counties, came out to learn from their peers and speakers.

Doctor Temple Grandin was the key note speaker discussing autism.

Other experts in child psychology and behavior were also featured guest speakers.

ESU 13's Staff Development Director Penny Businga says the auditorium was almost completely full.

"To learn new teaching ideas we brought in people from all over the nation to learn some of the best teaching we know how to give today's kids," Businga said.

Businga says the conference's focus is on the parents and educators of kids with autism.
