    Pls I would like to know if international participants are welcome for the conference.
    I am a teacher from Nigeria, Africa and I,’m interested in the conference.
    Secondly, do you have any affiliate in Africa?

  2. I am in process of getting my certification through Alternative-IV. I teach Spanish I & II in a NH high school. I am not sure what are your regulations in order to qualify. I would love to participate for the scholarship. I am Dyslexic and have ADHD, not to mention that I was diagnosed at the age of forty-nine. I understand the daily struggles, and the impact that it does to your self esteem, and the shameful of feeling different. The educational guidelines of expectations seems to target few but not all, when in comes to information process, The conventional formats doesn’t work for all, what I call, “The cookie cutter syndrome”. I am always seeking new ways in teaching were every students could benefit from the visual, first and then hearing, word patterns, well cognate words, and vocab. drills. Thank you, and good luck to all

    Would mental health counselors be able to apply to this scholarship? I work with emotionally disturbed students and others in special education including many with adhd.
