Theme: Improving Outcomes with Inclusive & Interdisciplinary Practices

Submission Deadline: March 15, 2019

We welcome all interested individuals to participate in the 2019 Chance to Parent Conference – Turning the Tide: Improving Outcomes with Inclusive & Interdisciplinary Practices.

Over the past decade much has been discovered about parenting with learning differences and intellectual disabilities. As more has been learned through research and practice, policy and practice has shifted in positive ways. This gathering offers social workers, legal professionals, policy makers, researchers, direct service providers, parents and others an opportunity to learn about new and innovative practice, policy and research taking place at local, state, national and international levels.

The conference will include plenary sessions highlighting inclusive and interdisciplinary practices to create positive outcomes for families. The application of the ADA in relation to child welfare cases will be shared and knowledge gained will apply across all disabilities.

A parent panel presentation, breakout sessions, keynote presentations, and a reception will enable participants to share knowledge and network among a broad scope of stakeholders.
