Listen & Learn Series

The Office of Special Services offers a Listen & Learn webinar every other Friday from 9 to 10 a.m. throughout the school year, unless otherwise noted. The series is intended to offer professional development and technical assistance for special education directors in the field. Topics may include transition services, services for the blind and visually impaired, and Chapter 33, among others.

Instructions for joining the webinar via Adobe Connect will be emailed to every SAU's special education director for the state of Maine prior to the session.
