American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) 2022 Annual Meeting

The 2022 Scientific Program Committee is thrilled to be planning an in-person meeting in Las Vegas September 21-24, 2022! AACPDM is aware of the evolving and continued uncertainties related to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are staying abreast of updates from health organizations and local authorities and remain committed to being responsive to ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health and travel restrictions. While all abstracts will be considered, priority will be placed on those who plan to present in person.

We are excited to offer Morning Seminars (previously known as Breakfast Seminars) and Mini Symposia at the 2022 Annual Meeting. 

The abstract submission website is now open and is set to close on Monday, January 31, 2022 at 11:59pm EST.

The committee will look favorably on submissions that directly address the following priority topics:

  • Meaningful outcomes for individuals with childhood onset disabilities and their families, including participation and inclusion. 
  • Innovative approaches to assessment, diagnosis and service delivery.
  • Identifying and addressing solutions to health inequities and disparities.
  • Early detection and intervention.
