Inclusion Alberta Virtual Family Conference 2021
Thank you to all who joined us for the 2021 virtual Family Conference!
Inclusion Alberta presents its 1st ever Virtual Family Conference April 16-17, 2021! The conference is a time for families, educators and service providers from all over the province to deepen their knowledge and commitment to assisting children and adults with developmental disabilities to live fully inclusive and meaningful lives in their community. The Conference is the largest and longest standing of its kind in the world, with over 800 people attending in the past.
The conference features morning workshops on Friday from feature speakers Dr. Paula Kluth and Janet Klees, a variety of morning and afternoon sessions to choose from on Saturday and Youth for Inclusion, a workshop for youth aged 16-22. In addition to the workshops and sessions listed, the Virtual Family Conference will also offer several fun opportunities for you to socialize, network and build relationships and connections with Conference attendees as well as speakers.
There is one General Admission ticket price ($50+ applicable service charges) for the Virtual Family Conference. Ticket purchase will give recipient access to Conference website and schedule planner plus all workshops, sessions, events and materials offered during the conference April 16-17, 2021. Only one registration will be needed per device/screen. However, if you are intending to watch multiple sessions at the same time (for example multiple people per household attending different sessions), you will need additional devices and registrations.
