What is LIFE Conference 2014?
LIFE Conference 2014 is Delaware’s largest conference devoted to the issues faced by children and adults with disabilities. The conference is made possible by a joint effort of many Delaware organizations whose primary purpose is to assist and enhance the lives of persons with disabilities and their families.
The goal of LIFE Conference 2014 is to support persons with disabilities, provide information, and educate conference attendees in each of the following four areas:
Legislation – Learn about state legislation and anticipated changes, how advocacy can impact changes in policy, and how to access community-based long-term care services.
Independence through Assistive Technology (AT) – Explore new applications and mobile devices, methods to increase accessibility in the home, and how to access and secure AT services.
Family – Learn how to better access medical services, why emergency preparedness is important, and about employment challenges and issues.
Education – Learn more about student to adult transition options, how to address bullying issues, and developing better behavioral assessment and intervention plans.
This one day event brings together a broad assortment of information designed to serve persons with disabilities and their families, as well as resources and knowledge to further help them live LIFE to the fullest.
