ESC 12 Waco

Project TEDD trained 16 special education teachers and other professionals from 9 school districts across ESC Region 12 on September 28, 2023. These educators are in the process of training other individuals in their schools and communities about the mental health needs of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They are already impacting the region by training others.
