Registration Information for Region 6 & 7 Spring 2018 CoLA Meetings
Hi Region 6 and 7 CoLA Members! We are pleased to invite you to attend our spring meeting – it’s going to be a great one!

Mickey VanDerwerker, Coordinator of Positive Behavior Supports and Low Incidence Disabilities at VT TTAC will present our Learning Boost - Addressing Executive Function Challenges in ASD: Understand, Accommodate, Remediate, Executive functions are cognitive processes that allow people to plan, organize, react to changes and setbacks, make decisions, pay attention and regulate behavior. Everybody uses executive function skills. We use them to solve problems and evaluate our actions so that we can change them if the outcome is not what we want. These skills are critical for success in school and in life. Students on the autism spectrum can have difficulties with executive function skills. This session will help participants understand how lagging executive function skills affect learning and behavior in students on the autism spectrum and will offer some ways to help address these skills.

The Region 7 meeting will be Thursday, March 8, 2018
SW VA Higher Education Center, 1 Partnership Circle, Abingdon, VA 24210.
Room 103-104

The Region 6 meeting will be Friday, March 9, 2018
Roanoke Higher Education Center, 108 North Jefferson Street, Roanoke, VA 24016
(Room TBD – 7th floor)

As usual, registration will be from 8:30-9:00 a.m. and the meeting will run from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. You are welcome to register for either meeting that is most convenient for you; the agenda will be the same.

One thing that is different this time will be that, we are sorry to say, we will not be able to provide coffee and refreshments. Please feel free to bring your own, and both of our venues have a snack bar where refreshments can be purchased. We will make sure to give you enough time at the break to purchase refreshments.

Please remember to bring your notebook and your name plate (if you took it with you). We will have these available for members who didn’t get them at our last meeting. We will bring name plates for those of you who left them with us.

We are so excited about this meeting! Mickey is a fantastic presenter and this is a topic that many of you have expressed strong interest in – please register and mark your calendar now! Spring will be here before you know it!
