November Education ExChange

Happy Halloween!

As November begins, Dwight Hall invites you to the second Education ExChange Wednesday November 6th 4:30-6:30pm in Dwight Hall’s Common Room.  The ExChange will feature a panel of different perspectives on the crucial issue of educating students with disabilities, considering angles from research, practice, and policy.

Panelists will include: Bill Henderson (YC ’72), award-winning former principal of Boston’s O’Hearn (since renamed the Henderson) Elementary School, author of The Blind Advantage: How Going Blind Made Me a Stronger Principal and How Including Children with Disabilities Made Our School Better for Everyone; Colleen Masse, Vice President of the non-profit advocacy organization SpEd Connecticut; James McPartland, Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Child Study Center, Director of the Yale Developmental Disabilities Clinic, and leading researcher on autism; Patricia Moore, Supervisor of Special Education in New Haven Public Schools; and Ed Peltier, Executive Director of the American School for the Deaf.  As you can see, we’ll have a rich range of perspectives to spark dialogue on this important topic.

Dwight Hall received great feedback from the last event and is excited to keep strengthening the series month-by-month.  We hope to see you there Wednesday November 6th!  Please  remember to pre-register by Monday, Nov. 4 at

Thanks very much.  Have a Happy (and safe) Halloween!
