- IN*SOURCE Appoints Executive Director
South Bend-based IN*SOURCE has promoted Joel Boehner (pictured) to Executive Director. He will begin his new duties on July 1, 2017. He has been with the organization for almost two years as director of the Indiana Parent Training Program. Boehner previously worked at Bethel College, with eight years of progressively increasing administrative and teaching experience over a broad scope of duties; college-level and developmental instruction, career services, curricular development, student retention, tutoring, advising and disability services in the context of multi-office management.
He will be stepping into the position held for almost 35 years by the current Executive Director Richard Burden. During his tenure, the organization has grown from 10 centrally-located employees to a team of 50 state-wide, all of whom offer assistance to parents who have children with special needs.
- New Video Training Added to Library "Special Education Evaluations: Why to Evaluate & What to Expect"
The "Special Education Evaluations: Why to Evaluate & What to Expect" video training has been added to our library of Archived Webinars. The special education process can be confusing and overwhelming to parents. This training will help clarify situations where an evaluation might be needed (or not needed), what to expect during the evaluation process, and ways that parents can support the evaluation process.
