POWER OF PLAY
Registration will open in September.
Join us for our 2022 Power of Play Virtual Conference Nov 7th-10th and get ready to LEARN, ADAPT and INCLUDE! Live and asynchronous sessions will provide participants with the strategies, resources, and best practices needed to make inclusion possible across all settings, in all activities, for children with and without disabilities.
Power of Play participants will have access to recorded traditional LEARN sessions full of information aligned to the Standards for Inclusive Recreation Programs, short recorded ADAPT sessions with tips and tricks to add to your toolbox, as well as two days of LIVE INCLUDE Q&A sessions from the presenters.
Traditional conference sessions in which speakers share content, information, research, strategies, etc. via slide presentations. These are recorded for asynchronous learning at your own pace with handouts available for download to supplement the video and use for reference.
Mini-sessions demonstrating an inclusion strategy, inclusive game, creative craft, accessible activity or adaptation tip recorded for learning on your own schedule. These are hands-on and practical recorded sessions designed to provide resources you can add to your “bag of tricks”.
Live Q&A sessions will be held on Wed. Nov 9th and Thurs. Nov 10th featuring the LEARN and ADAPT presenters & inclusion experts. These live sessions are a place for participants to ask all their questions about a presentation, ask for advice about issues impacting the field, or brainstorm ideas relevant to their work.
