Posted on: June 16, 2017

The Autism, Behavior, and Complex Medical Needs (ABC) Conference Planning Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the  8th Annual ABC Conference, “Lives in the Balance: Caring for Children with Special Needs, Their Families, Their Communities, And Ourselves in These Precarious Times,” scheduled for Friday, November 17, 2017, at Moraine Business and Conference Center in Palos Hills, IL. The conference theme has been determined by current American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) priorities and past participant feedback.

ABC Conference participants learn about the broad landscape of services and programs that are available to support children with special needs (including those that have been impacted by trauma and adversity) from birth through adolescence, and develop skills to make effective referrals and partner with other agencies and systems. Each track features sessions that converge with different systems, developmental services, medical interventions, and innovative partnerships that benefit children served across interprofessional groups. More information about ABC Conferences can be found here.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday, June 23, 2017 at 5pm.
