From Data to Delivery: Implementing Research-Based Intervention
A Special (Re)Habilitation Connect Forum to be held Friday, March 20, 2020 from 12:30-5:00 PM at the ACI Alliance CI2020 Conference in Orlando

Maya Angelou once said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” As the ACI Alliance has grown in number and in reach, the awareness of the need to engage and support therapy practitioners and educators in a better way also has grown. This knowledge, in addition to the overwhelming positive response regarding the (re)habilitation sessions and opportunities at CI2019 in Miami, has led to a new offering for CI2020 specifically for therapy practitioners and educators or anyone interested in therapy and education.

In addition to (re)habilitation presentations throughout the regular scientific program, the ACI Alliance is proud to announce an afternoon forum on Friday, March 20 entitled: From Data to Delivery: Implementing Research-Based Intervention. During this (re)habilitation-focused afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in sessions designed to provide clinically-applicable, research-based information on topics related to:

The complexities of family-centered care
Reading and cognition
Working with older children and teens

If as a therapy practitioner or educator you have wished for more in-depth information and more immediately applicable take-aways from the presentations you have attended at ACI Alliance meetings, this forum is for you. Please join us as we all strive to make our best better.
