Pre-Service Professionals' Discount

ATTENTION Pre-Service Professionals in Education Related Fields!

The Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) is offering a limited number of discounted registration rate for the HELIX (High Expectations for Students with Low Incidence Disabilities) Conference to pre-service professionals who are enrolled, full or part time, in an education-related degree or certification program at a college or university within the state of Pennsylvania. 
PaTTAN believes that reaching out to pre-service educators will help maximize access and create high expectations for students with low incidence disabilities. 
Individuals who are eligible:
  • are attending a college or university within Pennsylvania;
  • are enrolled either full time or part time in an educational degree and/or certification program (e.g., special education; teachers of the deaf, blind, or deaf-blind; elementary and/or secondary education; communication sciences and disorders; school counseling; school psychology; occupational therapy; physical therapy);
  • are pre-service;
  • are not employed by a local educational agency; 4) are not parents or guardians of a student with a disability (because we have other scholarship opportunities for families! Click here for more information for parents:   

Recipients of this discounted registration rate will be asked to assist with conference duties such as facilitating sessions, helping with technology, and aiding with the provision of accommodations. In exchange for this help, recipients will receive the discounted conference rate of $175 (a $60 discount). 
The deadline for the application is October 14, 2019; all applicants will be notified of the decision by October 21, 2019. Click here for the application. 
All expenses for the conference (e.g., discounted registration rate, lodging, meals not provided during the conference, travel) are the responsibility of the discount recipients. Any HELIX attendee may access a conference room rate at the The Penn Stater Hotel by using the code HELI19A. 
You may register for the conference prior to being awarded the discounted registration rate; if you do not receive this discount, you can decide whether to pay the full conference rate ($235.00 if paid before November 6, 2019) or you can cancel your registration by November 6, 2019 to avoid the registration charge. 
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
