2014 Social Emotional Enhancement and Development (S.E.E.D.) Conference

In October 2014, parents, caregivers, educators, and health care professionals gathered in Vancouver for the 1st S.E.E.D. Conference for children and youth with special needs. Individuals represented communities from across the province of B.C and from as far away as Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
 
98% of conference participants reported that they learned new information that they will be able to use. 90% indicated that they had a better understanding of social emotional development and learning. 92% indicated that they were satisfied with the presentations.
 
Much of the feedback was along the lines of the following:
 
“Thank you for the chance to better understand and to reach my child. Your thoughts and methods are something we will be working with in the future. Thank you”.
 
“I could listen to you for a LONG TIME. Thanks. We need you at our teachers’ convention and I will recommend you. Thanks again.”
 
“The organization was 1st class, the presenters came from a wide range of backgrounds and offered a multitude of support options for organizations such as schools to consider investigating and hopefully implementing. It was encouraging that a number of senior school personnel were presenting as this is a vital supporting unit that I have not often seen at Autism specific conferences”.
 
“BEST Presentation! Thank you! I will use mindfulness for myself, my son and my family. I want this to be a new practice for my family to reduce stress, etc.!”
