What Is the Hartwick Symposium Series?

The 2018 Annual Hartwick Symposium Series is a set of annual symposiums conducted to meet the needs of students with intellectual disability, families, and professionals.   There are three Hartwick Symposiums in the series; designated Self-Advocates, Family Focus, and Secondary.


The 2018 Annual Hartwick Symposium: Self-Advocates is a one-day symposium for young adults with intellectual disability enrolled in one of Florida’s inclusive postsecondary education programs.  The Hartwick Self-Advocates Symposium provides multiple opportunities for students with ID to learn, engage, network, and share information and resources about independence, employment, self-determination, and community.


The 2018 Annual Hartwick Symposium: Secondary is a one-day symposium for secondary educators to learn about Florida’s postsecondary options and resources for students with intellectual disability.

The 2018 Annual Hartwick Symposium: Family Focus is a one-day symposium for families and students of postsecondary options and resources leading to employment and career opportunities

for students with intellectual disability.
