FREE Admission for general education and special needs teachers, PTs/OTs, and other staff assigned to students’ IEP teams.

Hocus Focus is led by internationally-renowned illusionist Kevin Spencer. Spencer's groundbreaking research on the educational benefits of integrating magic tricks into the classroom for all students, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Intellectual/Developmental Delays, has been published in national scholarly journals. A feature article in INSIDE AUTISM magazine calls Spencer "the kids whisperer", thanks to his keen ability to connect with children with ASD.

Participants will learn Kevin Spencer's protocol and methodology. They will also have the option to participate in a national study of the program's impact on students' domains of cognition, motor skills, social skills and communication. ECA is certified by OSPI as an In-Service Education Agency. Participants will be eligible to earn clock-hour credits. Space limited.
