Teacher Trainer Participants
ESC 13 Austin

Project TEDD trained 26 special education teachers and other professionals from 18 school districts across ESC Region 13 on October 25, 2023.These educators are a valuable resource in their respective school districts and can provide additional training and information on educating students with dual diagnosis. This was our last training of the year, and we are excited to see these teachers train other individuals in their districts.
