AACPDM annual meeting

American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) Supporters/Exhibitors


Dear Industry and Institution Professionals:

The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) looks forward to our 78th Annual Meeting!

We have selected the theme, “Translating Discovery” for the 78th AACPDM Annual Meeting that will take place October 23-26, 2024, in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The theme represents both the importance of translating our scientific findings into practice for those we care for, and represents the translational role our science represents across boards. Please plan to come and celebrate new discoveries with us in Canada. The 2024 Scientific Program Committee is planning the meeting to accommodate and engage sponsors, exhibitors and speakers.

Coordinated Care Team in One Membership:

To ensure the best possible health and development outcome, individuals with childhood-onset disabilities need coordinated care by a number of medical professionals in various specialties throughout their lifespan. Information and ideas shared at the AACPDM Annual Meeting have exponential impacts as they will be shared at home institutions with multi-disciplinary decision-makers and team members. Our membership is broad and diverse! For instance, this is the only meeting where you can reach a physical therapist who heads a program at a major hospital, a chief physician of a hospital neuromotor program, an occupational therapist who purchases equipment for a clinic, a neurologist or developmental pediatrician who researches the effectiveness of a new drug therapy, and a speech therapist who works with patients on communication, swallowing, socialization, and learning while also recommending devices to the rest of the care team.

Professionals from various disciplines, and more than 53 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia regularly attend the AACPDM Annual Meeting. Our meeting provides a unique opportunity to bring together specialists from around the world and leaders in the field of childhood-onset disability and a chance for your organization to meet them all in one place.

AACPDM actively provides new opportunities to collaborate throughout the year with sponsors. We look forward to and greatly appreciate your participation and recognize our common mission of improving lives and outcomes for people with childhood-onset disabilities. AACPDM values your research and development and market analysis used to implement science in a way we can use as clinicians. Reserve your sponsorship and exhibitor selections now!
