Hosted by the Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics
The target audience for the ABC conference includes primary care providers and their teams, including pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health care professionals including nurses, therapists, and social workers. In addition, providers from other settings including (early) care and education, special education, home visiting, community service providers, legal aid, and more are encouraged to attend. The conference will offer ample opportunity for attendees to network with like-hearted and like-minded professionals from multiple child-serving systems that have a stake in the lives of children with special needs, including those that have been impacted by trauma.
ABC Conference participants can expect to learn about the broad landscape of services and programs that are available to support children with special needs from birth through adolescence, and develop skills to make effective referrals and partner with other agencies and systems. Each track (A,B, and C) features sessions that converge with different systems, developmental services, medical interventions, and innovative partnerships that benefit children served across interprofessional groups. The keynote sessions address the overall theme of the conference.
