Roots & Wings. Proceedings of the PEPNet 2006 Biennial Conference (Louisville, Kentucky, April 4-8, 2006)
PEPNet 2
During April 2006, educators, students, service providers and professionals from across the nation and the world gathered together at the fifth biennial PEPNet Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, to share concepts, ideas, research, technologies and successful practices that have helped individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing establish strong roots and grow strong wings. The purposes of this conference were to bring challenging issues and promising solutions together in a collaborative atmosphere, to establish solid networks that enhance one-on-one service delivery to clients and students who are deaf and hard of hearing, and to put solid workable strategies in the hands of professionals, students and clients alike. The PEPNet 2006 conference offered sessions that were of interest to disability support services staff, administrators, counselors, students, interpreters, tutors, and faculty members. The conference featured sessions that offered practical, replicable strategies for providing services to students who are deaf or hard of hearing and who are attending postsecondary educational or training programs.
