The 36th Annual International Conference on Young Children with Special Needs and their Families, originally scheduled for October 20-23, 2020 in Minneapolis, MN, will now be virtual!
Due to the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, the DEC Executive Board and DEC Executive Office feel the move to virtual is the best path to assure the safety and well-being of our attendees.
Please release the original dates and watch for exciting news as we reimagine this year's conference.
We will be connecting soon with those who have submitted sessions to discuss possibilities!
We are especially excited about the opportunity to bring the conference to those who may not have been able to previously attend! We hope to engage all who care about quality services for infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities and their families into the conversation about Achieving Meaningful Inclusion for All!
Together we will find new ways to advocate, innovate, and enact changes aimed at creating more equitable and inclusive services for young children with disabilities and their families!
