Presenter: Andrew D’Antonio Read Presenter Bio
Andrew has a bachelors of music in piano performance from Pacific Lutheran University, a masters of science in teaching in early childhood special education from Fordham University, and a masters of music in collaborative piano and music history from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He regularly performs as a soloist and chamber musician. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Andrew returned from the East Coast in 2019 and currently lives and teaches in Portland, Oregon.
This workshop is intended as an introduction to special education techniques that can be applied in small group and one-on-one settings. Participants will gain a foundational understanding of the most common (and most commonly misunderstood) disabilities that can be disruptive in a traditional private lesson setting: autism, dyslexia, and ADHD. Participants will have a chance to discuss and problem-solve scenarios specific to their own studios, and they will leave with a range of resources that will help support them in the future.
