Welcome to the new EACD website!

The European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD) is founded in 1989, and is an international not-for-profit association for anyone with a clinical and/or scientific interest in childhood-onset disabilities in Europe. The mission of the EACD is to promote research and education for the benefit of people with childhood-onset disabilities throughout Europe and beyond.

EACD Aims: In furtherance of our mission, the EACD shall engage in the following aims and activities:

  • To ensure regular education and exchange of information bearing on all aspects of childhood disability through meetings, congresses, symposia, working groups, training courses, exhibitions and publications.
  • To support the medical and scientific aspects of research into the care and treatment of childhood disabilities.
  • To foster cooperation between those active in the field of childhood disabilities in Europe and elsewhere.
  • To encourage people throughout Europe to become professionally active in the field of childhood disabilities.
  • To maintain the highest possible ethical and scientific standards in all EACD activities, and to encourage the use of the highest possible ethical and scientific standards by those working in the field of childhood disabilities.

Commitment to the mission of the EACD can be done as individual by becoming a member, as has been done already by many individuals from across Europe, working in areas including but not limited to (neuro)pediatrics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, physical medicine and rehabilitation, speech and language therapy, orthopedic surgery, psychiatry, nursing, social-work, and special education.
