  Academic Acceleration 101:

The Integrated Acceleration System

Presented by: 

Susan Assouline, Ann Lupkowski-Shoplik, and Randy Lange 

Who needs to be accelerated? What form of acceleration is needed? When it is best to accelerate? Presenters provide an objective process, supported by the online Integrated Acceleration System, that facilitates decisions about who, what form, and when. In this interactive session, participants will consider the major forms of acceleration and learn about the research underlying this underused intervention. The session will include practical tips for the process of making acceleration decisions and for the transition period after acceleration has occurred

This half-day session is being offered at no charge as a part of the Annual Conference.  Registration is required for Friday of the conference. To reserve your space, please register on this page.
