In this 2nd part of a two part episode, I had the opportunity to sit down and have in-depth conversations with multiple experts who were somehow connected to the Minnesota Developmental Adapted Physical Education (DAPE) conference. In this episode I was able to meet with two of the DAPE keynote speakers who discussed their presentations and why their topics were of great importance to the field. The two keynote speakers were Lara Brickhouse, the 2017 SHAPE APE teacher of the year; and Dr. Suzanna Dillon, my dissertation adviser :) and the president of the National Consortium for Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities. With listening to this podcast, it is my hope that (1) some of the listeners learn about the great things that are occurring at APE conferences and the impact of that leadership has on our field; and (2) that if you are in a state that does not have an APE conference of leadership, that you might consider developing one yourself or with a small group of other passionate APE teachers.
On another note, I recently had a publication of my own in the field of visual impairments and motor behavior. The article specifically focuses on how children with visual impairments balance under different learning cues. Check it out and let me know your thoughts!
