2017 FOCUS/DSAA Education Conference

Conference Overview: After a child is diagnosed with a significant developmental or physical disability, families need resources and information. The annual FOCUS Education Conference invites professionals to speak on various topics to help parents (and other professionals) find the information they need! Representatives from community agencies will exhibit so participants can learn about services, such as respite care, therapy groups, assistive technology, and adapted equipment. Parents enjoy a day of networking with professionals, community agencies, and other parents and learn valuable information to help their child…..and their family.

Conference Registration: Please register by January 16, 2017. Late registrations are accepted on a space-available basis. Sorry, no childcare is available.
