Power of Play Virtual Conference
Registrants will have access to ALL sessions live and recorded. No more missing one valuable session to attend an even better one! You can have them ALL!
Registration coming soon
In 2020, we have all been forced to adapt personally, professionally, and socially. But two facts remain: 1) Social inclusion for children with disabilities remains a vital priority and function that we must work to make happen; and 2) those practicing inclusion have been adapting successfully for years and they aren't stopping now!
Power of Play is going to look a bit different this year, but we've got the information, fun and games being adapted as we speak! So make some great snacks, get comfy on the couch and join experts from across the country to learn best practices in inclusion, adaptation and play.
Watch this space for all the new and exciting changes in store for POP this year!

What people are saying about the Power of Play
"As a professional who has been attending conferences for over 20 years, I must say that I received more relevant information during this conference than any other I’ve been to. I returned feeling enthusiastic and empowered!"
"It was very helpful to learn practical skills that can be directly applied in my work, ie, preventive strategies for working with children with autism (visual aids), as well as useful ice breakers that not only help in getting to know each other, but also help one in seeing how it might feel in someone else’s shoes."
"It was so beneficial to learn that other organizations share similar challenges as we do as well as to hear from those who’ve had good success in areas where we may not have the same resources. I am amazed by the overall enthusiasm everyone had for both the conference and their own programs."
"I came away with a better perspective of what inclusion truly is and ways to present it to my staff."
