The Exceptional Student Services Unit at Colorado Department of Education plans conferences throughout the year that are family-centered and designed to offer support, information, and education to parents and professionals. We call these gatherings PEP Conferences!
Three PEP Conferences are offered throughout the school year - one in the fall, one in winter and one in the spring. The purpose of these conferences is to bring Colorado parents (might include an adoptive parent(s), grandparent(s) or other relative(s), or a single parent) and professionals together to allow them an opportunity to share ideas, discuss concerns, celebrate success, and obtain information relating to parenting, educating and supporting a child with a disability. PEP and its conferences promote partnerships that are essential in supporting and including children with disabilities and their families in schools and the community.
Imagine! provides services designed to incorporate people with developmental, cognitive, and physical challenges into the fabric of their communities. Services include educational and therapeutic services, job training and placement, recreation and leisure activities, opportunities for community living, behavioral health services, technology solutions, and support for families.
