Important Information About Conference Sessions

Spanish interpretation. All live-streamed sessions will have Spanish interpretation.  For in-person attendees, the interpretation can be accessed via virtual streaming audio.  Note that in-person attendees who wish to access the Spanish interpretation will need a device (such as a phone or tablet) and headphones to listen to the interpretation.  (Free wifi will be available in the conference space.)

Virtual participation. This is a hybrid event, and speakers are expected to design their workshop sessions as an inclusive experience for both in-person and virtual attendees.  Note for Parent Centers and F2Fs:  in-person attendance is expected for directors.  You must notify your project officer if you plan to attend virtually.

Third day of the conference.  All virtual and in-person attendees are invited to the final morning Policy Panel plenary 8:30am-10:00am ET.  The conference ends at 10:00am ET for all participants who are not F2F or Parent Center staff.  F2F and Parent Center meetings end at 12:30pm ET.  In-person F2F and FVAO attendees are encouraged to schedule afternoon appointments with their Members of Congress to educate about the work of F2Fs and the needs of families of CYSHCN.

Breakout session choices. Tuesday and Wednesday each have 3 breakout session times during which there will be eight concurrent sessions.  Once the session schedule is finalized, all registrants will be asked to select which breakout sessions they wish to attend in order to help with room assignments and other logistics.  See below for a list of breakout session topics.

Breakout session content areas will include:

  • Health equity/racial justice
  • Impact of COVID-19 on children and youth with special educational and/or health care needs and their families
  • Partnership building
