Planning for Success: Initiatives for Positive Outcomes. Proceedings of the PEPNet 2004 Biennial Conference (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, April 21-24, 2004)
PEPNet 2
How may an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing focus on success? How can we as professionals best promote environments that will facilitate achievement and positive outcomes for these individuals? "Planning for Success: Initiatives for Positive Outcomes," the PEPNet conference held in April 2004, was a conference dedicated to answering these questions and many more. Educators and service providers from across the nation and the world gathered together at the fourth biennial PEPNet Conference to share concepts, ideas, facts, technologies and successful practices that have helped to achieve these goals. The PEPNet 2004 conference offered sessions that were of interest to disability support services staff, administrators, counselors, interpreters, tutors, and faculty members from developmental studies as well as college-level courses. In addition, faculty and staff from secondary education programs and service providers from rehabilitation also participated. Students in related professional areas such as rehabilitation counseling and interpreting were welcomed at the conference. The conference featured sessions that offered practical, replicable strategies for providing services to students who are deaf or hard of hearing and attending postsecondary educational programs. This publication offers the reader a small sample of the information that was exchanged during the conference.
