Angelo State University will host an Education Symposium featuring Chris Ulmer, founder and CEO of Special Books by Special Kids, on Monday, March 5, in the Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive.
Ulmer will give two free public presentations, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center. During his presentations, Ulmer will share his experiences assisting special needs students in reaching their full potential. All local and area current and future teachers are encouraged to attend.
Special Books by Special Kids is a nonprofit educational resource organization dedicated to building a global dialogue around neurodiversity, providing children and families from the special needs community with an audience to share their thoughts and experiences, and inspiring future teachers through innovative and intentional curriculums.
Ulmer started Special Books by Special Kids because he feared the isolation the neurodiverse community often faces would limit his students’ ability to meet their full potential and positively impact society. What started as an idea for a book series has grown into a global multi-media movement. More details are available at www.specialbooksbyspecialkids.org.
Ulmer’s ASU appearance is sponsored by the ASU College of Education, student chapter of the Kappa Delta Pi international education honor society, and student chapter of the Texas Classroom Teachers Association.
