An e-newsletter about
TALKS, TRAININGS, TOOLS to help in your work for/with people with
intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
Year 1 | Issue 2 | May 2018
Welcome to the second issue of THINKing+change, a quarterly newsletter with information about TALKS, TRAININGS, and TOOLS!
Have you been hearing the buzz about medical cannabis and CBD as a nutritional supplement and as a possible treatment for PTSD, autism, epilepsy, and chronic pain? Or even as an alternative to opiod prescriptions? Wondering whether the buzz has merit? Check out the
Finding Health conference agenda and see that our experts will be answering those (and many other!) questions. While you missed Early Bird registration, you are just in time for Middle Bird! More info on Finding Health is in the TRAININGS section below.
Let me know your questions about how THINK+change's TALKS, TRAININGS, TOOLS might support
YOUR work to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

THINK+change TALKS are provocative, in-person or video shorts on topics of interest to, or emerging issues for, people with IDD and those who care for and work with them.
Higher Education and Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder Series
Hear Sam talk about what he and other students on the autism spectrum need from the higher education system to be successful.
THINK+change will be producing TALKS on hfASD and behavior, living with disability, and the special education pipeline to prison this year. Want to sponsor (any of) these series? Contact Jean - firstname.lastname@example.org 720.213.1420.
THINK+change TRAININGS are in-person or online, small or large group, targeted educational opportunities on issues that directly impact people with IDD and those who care for and work with them.
Finding Health Conference 2018
Everything we put in our mouths, including supplements, is ultimately part of our nutrition. Can products such as medical cannabis and CBD really help treat post traumatic stress disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and epilepsy? Is hemp a nutritional food supplement? This conference will provide you the knowledge and tools to help you find YOUR health.
Scholarships are available to help pay your attendance. This will be the hottest disability conference of the year; don't miss it!
THINK+change can package a hands-on way for your organization to use already created
Sixty Second Seminars microlearning sessions in a more formal training opportunity.
Disability in Society Online Education Series
Produced with support and cooperation from the Colorado Cross Disability Coalition, Disability in Society series begins with Citizen, not just consumer and continues with Hiring people with disabilities is just good business.
The series is a perfect primer to help insure you and your team are prepared to welcome and support guests with disabilities. Each of the six training sessions is short (2-3 minutes or less) and focuses on best practices in supporting and interacting with people with disabilities.
