Back by popular demand, Patrick is a board-certified behavior analyst, a certified speaker, trainer, and coach with the John Maxwell Team, and a cancer survivor. Always entertaining and certain to deliver positive takeaways, he is an educational consultant and works as the assistant director of autism and student independence for the Auburn School District in Washington state.
Meet him at TSD Conference on Nov. 18, where he will focus on reconnecting people’s purposes with their passion and how loud and effective people can be when they chant in unison. Patrick has committed his work to “lighting it up” for all those who support special needs learners through a hybrid of instruction and inspiration. His resources and strategies have helped make the complex simple, equipping teachers, administrators, therapists, para-educators and school bus drivers, alike.
First, Patrick will give the opening keynote on “Creating a Home Field Advantage” for students with disabilities and special needs, especially in light of COVID-19. Later in the day, he will be joined by TSD Conference advisor Pete Meslin for a discussion on “Realizing Equity in Student Transportation.”
