The Education Piece:
David Petonyak, creator of the website Imagine and a nationally recognized expert on the role that inclusion plays in the lives of people with developmental disabilities relative to challenging behavior, will be in Spokane on the second week in February. The Spokane County Parent Coalition may have an opportunity to have him present a short workshop while he is here, but we need to know how many people would be interested in attending. Click the link to learn more about David and the Imagine website: http://www.dimagine.com/index.html
If you are interested in attending a workshop with David sometime between February 8 and 10 (a specific date and time is yet to be determined), please advise Brian Holloway by return e-mail at //email@example.com“>firstname.lastname@example.org soon as possible. Please also let us know if a morning, afternoon or evening event works best for you so we can accommodate people’s schedules as best we can.
The Fun Piece (from the Experimental Education Unit at the University of Washington):
Now that the happy holidays are complete it’s time to plan your next evening out. The EEU Dad’s Group is hosting a Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament Saturday, January 30th, between the last week of football playoffs and the Superbowl. The night isn’t just for parents of the EEU, any friends or family are welcome to come and have some fun together while raising funds that go towards the EEU Auction.
Dinner, Drinks (unlimited) and Poker fee are all included in the $100 cash entry fee. The reception will begin at 5:30 with beer, wine, cocktails and sizing up the competition. Dinner will be catered by Pecado Bueno and the cards will start flying around 6:30.
If you’re poker skills are rusty or you get ‘beat on the river’ there are Re-buys available. The funds that are raised are split between the winners and the Dad’s Council to be used to raffle items at the EEU.
