Lunch and Room of Your Own | Special Needs Mini-Conference (Room 4)
The special needs blogging community is big enough–and important enough–to warrant this nearly three-hour mini-conference, co-hosted by moderator Julia Roberts and Support for Special Needs, and featuring Aurelia Cotta, Robert Rummel-Hudson, and Shannon Rosa.
The Special Needs Mini-Conference will begin with its own lunch service (11:45am – 1:15pm), at which you’ll have a chance to connect with other attendees as you share a meal. It will continue on through to the first afternoon “breakout” session (1:15pm – 2:30pm). In it, you will explore such topics as: blogging authentically whether you are an anonymous blogger or a public one; how to tell a story no one wants to hear (and be heard anyway) in the larger mainstream blogging world; and how to build your blogging community, gain momentum, or to use your site for education and awareness.
Aurelia, Julia, Robert, and Shannon will share their own insights with the larger group, but you'll also have the opportunity to go deeper in small round-table discussions moderated by parents of kids with special needs. Connect and share is the goal of this time carved out for niche bloggers in the special needs arena.
