Primary Speaker name:
In this plenary session, Jenna Ramsey will share her story of life, love, loss, and gain, through the life of her son PJ. As a special educator and administrator, Jenna knew this fact: differences can elicit fear. And when her son PJ was born, that truth was magnified. Throughout PJ's life, Jenna worked to effectively partner with medical teams, school system staff, and community agencies to provide PJ a rich quality of life; a life of inclusion. During this plenary session, participants will have the opportunity to hear this family's perspective on living an inclusive life and gain insights on the ways which healthy and effective partnerships with teachers, therapists, doctors, and case managers, allowed PJ to live well.
