Parents and professionals are invited to attend this event that will help
participants reconsider the “problem kids” in their own high schools and spark new conversations about an education revolution that’s about empowering– not overpowering –our most emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth.

Kelsey Carroll has one goal – to graduate from high school – and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. 'Who Cares About Kelsey?' is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive “problem student” to a motivated and self-confident young woman.

Certificates with contact hours will be available. Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Units, Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Continuing Professional Development Units, and Step Up To Quality Units are pending approval.

There is a $10 conference fee.
