There’s nothing like a face-to-face meeting to recharge your batteries, fuel your creativity, and renew your sense of mission. TCASE is the leading provider of must-attend events when you’re seeking to gain new knowledge, expand your professional network, and strengthen your connection to the Texas special education community.
While our conventions have become the premiere place to get the latest updates, imperative networking and leading strategies, we also have an array of smaller, topic-focused events to hone your knowledge and skills on particular topics.
