Past ABC Conferences

The first Autism, Behavioral Challenges, and Complex Medical Needs (ABC) Conference in 2010 was organized by The University of Chicago, Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics(ICAAP), Almost Home Kids and the Illinois LEND (Leadership, Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities) program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The vision of the conference was prompted by the work of the ICAAP faculty participating in Enhancing Developmentally Oriented Primary Care (EDOPC), a partnership between of ICAAP and the Advocate Healthcare Healthy Steps Program. EDOPC has been a resource for healthcare providers in Illinois to improve the delivery and financing of preventive health and developmental services for children birth to age three. Below are program brochures, presentations and handouts of all past ABC Conferences.
