EACD Barcelona 2022 - Call for Abstracts!

2 Sep 2021 12:00 | EACD (Administrator)

The scientific committee of the 34th Annual Meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD) invites you to submit abstracts for a mini-symposium, instructional course, oral communication and/or poster presentation. Be aware that only abstracts following the Guidelines for Abstract Submission (see here) will be accepted.

With our motto "Networking knowledge into actions" we invite authors from all fields and professions surrounding children and adults with disabilities to submit their topics. With improving networks of care and better web connectivity, collaborative working across boundaries has prospered within Europe and across our global community. We would welcome submissions where such collaborations has led to a change in practice, influenced outcomes, offered benefits or thrown up some challenges. All abstracts related to childhood-onset disabilities are welcome, including those on treatment, prevention, early detection, early intervention, transition and lifespan issues, parents' and siblings’'experiences, adult research, health systems, engineering in disability, basic sciences, social science research and ethics.

We are interested in receiving submissions across a large number of conditions, including cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury (traumatic, stroke, cancer), neuromuscular disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, obstetrical brachial plexus palsy, spinal disorders, intellectual impairments, learning disabilities, profound intellectual and multiple disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, sensory impairments, genetic syndromes (e.g. Down, Rett, ...), rare diseases (e.g. neurometabolic, neurodegenerative, ...) and all other neurodevelopmental conditions.
