    AusACPDM The current COVID-19 outbreaks throughout Australia have created increasing uncertainty about travel both within Australia and Internationally. Currently there is almost no travel across state borders in Australia, and the likelihood of international borders opening early in 2022 seems remote. Because of these uncertainties, the Better Together 2022 Organising Committee, in consultation with the AusACPDM Board and IAACD Steering Group, have made the decision to move to a fully virtual Conference in March 2022.

    This decision has been made now in advance before there are too many financial implications to the Host Academy, to those wishing to make plans to attend, and to allow time for the Committee to put together the best virtual conference possible for our participants. The Better Together 2022 Organising Committee thanks everyone for their support and understanding in this decision, and we are all very much looking forward to a day when we can all safely come together again. We are Better Together, and we can be Better Together virtually as well as in person.

    The EACD Early Career Researchers’ Forum has been launched on Thursday 3 June 2021 during the EACD Europe 2021 Meeting!

    All Early Career Researchers within the EACD Community are welcome to join this Forum and to participate in the activities of the Early Career Researchers’ Forum. The Forum is intended to be a central platform run by Early Career Researchers (ECRs) for the ECRs community across Europe active in the area of childhood-onset disability. A place for ECRs to find and discuss opportunities, learn from others, share experiences, get to know your colleagues, mentor peers, and create impact through community engagement.

    Would you like to be involved or participate in the activities of the Forum? Please complete the survey here: 

    This short survey has been prepared by the current (interim-)leads of the Forum to capture your thoughts and ideas, and allow you to indicate your interest in this initiative. Furthermore, please feel free to introduce yourself on the Padlet Board at EACD Early Career Researchers' Forum, and tell us some more about who you are, where you are from, and what your research, clinical or other interests are!

    Under the meeting theme 'Childhood Disability in a Changing World', EACD Europe 2021 looked back on the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on the area of childhood disability, from the use of remote consultation methods and tele-medicine up to the mental health impact. But also looked forward to the newest trends in rehabilitation and care, the possibilities for user-professionals partnerships, and the latest developments in technology and innovation.

    Around 600 delegates from 54 different countries joined us during this innovative, fully virtual meeting with four Thematic days spread over four consecutive weeks. During these weeks, the participants have been presented 22 keynotes, 71 oral communications, 194 poster presentations, and 4 satellite symposia. Furthermore, EACD Europe 2021 is proud to have hosted the launch of the EACD Early Career Researchers' Forum, and the inaugural meeting of the Early Intervention in Developmental Disabilities Special Interest Group.

    All session recordings will become available at short notice at the EACD2021 Virtual Platform and will be accessible for all EACD2021 delegates up until December 2021!
