The Dawson County Exceptional Children’s Community Based Instruction program has done remarkably well in its first two years, so much so that program leads Edith Banta and Ashley Elliott recently presented it to the state as a model program. Banta, Elliott and Exceptional Children Director Hershel Bennett traveled down to St. Simon’s Island for the Institute Designed for Educating All Students, or IDEAS, Conference presented by the Georgia Department of Education last week to lead a presentation about the program’s success. The IDEAS conference provides professional learning environments via workshops, sessions and networking related to teaching students with disabilities.
