ACENA Conference Registration Now Open

 In Events

Parents and professionals… Registration is now open for the upcoming 2018 ACENA Conference. This year’s conference, hosted by Sara’s Garden, is being held at historic Sauder Village, in Archbold, Ohio from August 27-29.

We are so excited to be able to convene dedicated conductors, administrators and professionals from across the world to learn, connect, envision and build the future of the practice of Conductive Education.

The working theme of the conference this year is: CONDUCTIVE EDUCATION ~ BLENDING TRADITION AND INNOVATION. The conference aims to highlight how the discipline of Conductive Education is a holistic approach to intervention that bridges the gap between educational and therapy services.

The conference’s keynote speaker is Dr. Lynne Gauthier, Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at The Ohio State University. Dr. Gauthier will be presenting on “Neuroplasticity, Rehabilitation & Gaming.” Though a relative newcomer to Ohio State, Dr. Gauthier has made significant inroads in finding collaborators and obtaining funding to support a research program that uses neuroimaging techniques to study the clinical efficacy of constraint-induced movement therapy (CI therapy), which is used to treat hemiparesis resulting from stroke, cerebral palsy, and brain injury.

This conference should be an invaluable resource to professionals, educators, special education teachers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physicians, social workers, program directors and administrators and parents of children with special needs. We hope you are able to attend.
