ODN’s sessions will be led by field professional Beth Reusser, a Certified Academic Language Therapist with Sensible Learning, LLC.

The diversity conference will be held on Saturday, September 6 from 8:30-3:30 at Olentangy Orange High School in Lewis Center. The conference is free and is open to parents and teachers. CEUs can be purchased for conference attendance.
