Registration is now open for the 8th annual GreenSTAR symposium, to be held Friday, October 3rd, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.  The forum is for and about people with disabilities—an exchange of information, ideas, and inspiration for creating better lives for people with disabilities. It is sponsored by the South Dakota Council on Developmental Disabilities and LifeScape—formerly South Dakota Achieve and Children’s Care Hospital & School.

Margaret Sumption of Sioux Falls, with deep roots in advocacy, counseling, administration, and teaching, will deliver the keynote speech, “Are We There Yet? – Advocating for a Better World in Which to Live, Work, & Play.”

Breakout sessions feature Laura Barker of Michigan-based Making Connections Inc. on sensory processing, plus many other topics such as gluten-free, casein-free, and consistent carb diets; advocacy and leadership; dementia in people with disabilities, employment, borderline personality disorder, depression, ADHD/OCD/ impulse control, and music therapy.  There will also be a singing bowls session with tips on stress management.

Individuals with disabilities, families of people with disabilities, professionals serving people with disabilities, and employers of people with disabilities are all encouraged to attend.

There are so many wonderful people with expertise in many different disciplines who work at Children's Care, and they come together every day to do what is in best interest of the individuals we serve. The best part of my job is seeing my students make progress, knowing that I am an important piece of their lives in teaching them skills to be successful. My students are my focus and the heart of my career.
