Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, UCP has decided to postpone the Family Conference until 2021.
We look forward to seeing you then!
Are you saving the date for the 2020 UCP Family Conference?
UCP’s Family Support Conference brings together families who are raising children with a disability, adults experiencing disabilities, as well as the medical, therapeutic, and educational professionals who work with them. This is the only conference of its kind in the Northwest.
The two-day gathering includes workshops and speakers that focus on new research in the area of intellectual and developmental disabilities, new surgical and therapeutic techniques, as well as alternative therapies and educational innovations.
The 250 plus attendees have the opportunity to visit vendors presenting services, resources and equipment.
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.
