This October, UCP held our first-ever “Mini” Family Conference—a one-day conference designed for families who experience cerebral palsy.
We’re pleased to report that the Mini Conference was a hit! Attendees said that it was, “absolutely wonderful and extremely informative,” “just the right size,” and that they “felt very included and together.”
UCP normally has a Family Conference every two years. This year, though, we’re having a special extra “Mini” Conference on Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 9am-4:30pm in Salem.
“It’s designed for parents who are raising a child who experiences cerebral palsy…although all five workshops are relevant for parents raising a child with any disability!
At the “My Child’s Life Care Notebook” session, you’ll learn how to keep track of your child’s school and medical records using a special (free!) notebook. You’ll be able to get life planning off the back burner at our “Life Care Planning/ABLE Act” session. And you’ll learn how to navigate and appeal insurance decisions at our “Healthcare/Insurance Advocacy & Funding Resources” session.
