Dr. Katie Krammer to present at 2016 Council for Exceptional Children Special Education Convention and Expo


Dr. Katie Krammer, Associate Professor of Special Education at Lake Erie College, will present at the 2016 Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) Special Education Convention and Expo in St. Louis, MO taking place April 13-16.

Alongside Dr. Paul LaCava from Rhode Island College, Dr. Krammer will be presenting on two topics. First, "Autism in the Age of Evidence Based Practice" will explore major evidence-based practice reviews, limitations, policy implications and practice suggestions for educators. Second, "Partnering with Parents to Create an Autism Support Group" will showcase the research regarding the stressors related to having a child with autism and the need for support groups for parents and caregivers.

“I am very pleased to get to present with my longtime friend Dr. LaCava, who is also a graduate of the University of Kansas doctoral program,” said Dr. Krammer. “In addition to getting to share my own research, I’m looking forward to attending various sessions on the leading research and practices in special education which I will then bring back to incorporate into my teaching here at Lake Erie College.”

Dr. Krammer has a long history of bringing awareness and support to autism spectrum disorders and is the co-founder of the Lake/Geauga County Autism Support Group.
