Implementation of Early Detection and Intervention for Cerebral Palsy
2 Day Conference - April 6-7, 2018
Registration fee: $250
In the United States, we too often fail to implement best practices for Early Detection and Intervention of CP. There is an urgent need to improve how we recognize and address developmental disability.
We highly encourage patient care providers to come with their leaders/organizational/business partners in order to benefit from the implementation workshops that are all team-based.
Educational credits will be awarded upon producing final process which will be reviewed by the conference committee. Partial credit will not be given. Educational credits available
- Friday, April 6th - 8am-5pm to include an introduction, morning plenary session, and workshops throughout the day. Dinner in the evening.
- Saturday, April 7th - 8:30am-5pm to include morning plenary session, and workshops throughout the day.
