A national benchmark in
Educational excellence through integration of the arts

National Benchmark

The Arts Education Partnership (AEP) held its 2013 National Forum in Washington, DC, in April. Three ArtSpace staff members, Executive Director Lori Cozzi, Theatre Arts Specialist and Development Associate Josh Batenhorst, and Behavioral Specialist Chris Larson, presented a conference session at the event. They were joined by the Program Director for the NC A+ Schools Program, Michelle Burrows. Entitled The Artist Speaks: Listening to Students with Special Needs, the session shared case studies and practical strategies for meeting the needs of all students and engaged a dialogue about the resources and barriers that exist for expanding these practices nationwide.
