Scholarship for Oregon Teacher

Parents of Autistic Children of Oregon's mission is to educate the community on effective autism treatment. One way of doing this is to create a pool of qualified individuals to conduct trainings, consultation and assessments. We feel there is a tremendous need in the Oregon and SW Washington area and we are looking for an educational professional (preferably a public school special educator) who wants to further his or her contribution to the field of special education. POAC of Oregon takes great pride in offering one scholarship (over $500 value) for tuition for the Association of Direct Instruction Conference in Eugene, Oregon from July 22nd through July 26th, 2007. For more information on the conference, please see: Graduate credits are available through the University of Oregon.
