Conference Theme –  Knowledge into Practice: A Lifespan Approach

The 12th DCD International Conference encourages presentations addressing a range of issues from etiological factors underlying movement problems to diagnosis/assessment and intervention. It will aim to take into account broader new and innovative research of relevance, as well as reflect on the importance of multidisciplinary research, the influence of co-morbid and associated difficulties, such as cognitive, social-emotional and physical participation, and the implications of these for translation into practice. It is anticipated that these broad aims will be presented with a consideration of the developmental aspects and life-span outcomes for these individuals.

The conference welcomes submissions for oral and poster presentations, symposia and workshops. Research abstracts need to be in English in a structured format (Introduction, Method, Results, Conclusions) and should not exceed 400 words. Please do not include any figures or tables. As a double blind review process will be used, please ensure there is no identifying information on the abstract upload. There will be student awards for the best oral and poster presentations.
