Conference Description:

All children have the right to opportunities for realizing their full potential. Some children by nature of individual, family, or community circumstances are more vulnerable and will need extra support in achieving this. In order for these supports to be most effective, we must look through the eyes of the child. We must integrate our knowledge of the principles of child and family development with research and innovative practice. Special attention will be given to children in care and children with disabilities.

Conference Objectives:

This conference will provide opportunities to learn about new research and evolving practice relating to:

- child care
- developmental disabilities
- parenting
- child development
- diversity
- policy/politics
- children at risk
- inclusion
- professional challenges
- children in care
- infant & child mental health
