Leading Change Together

Join us at AUCD 2019 as we come together to celebrate the many ways we lead change, as we work with diverse communities and people, create programming, conduct research, practice, and advocacy that impacts the broad spectrum of disability. We welcome network members, non-network organizational partners, experts from all across the disability field, individuals with disabilities, family members, and trainees to learn and grow together during this exciting event.

Opening Plenary: Be the Change: Perspectives on a More Inclusive Movement

Don't miss this dynamic panel of next-generation leaders as they discuss the future of disability rights and ways that our network can help them lead and have an impact. What are some of the research questions that need to be answered that support the disability agenda moving forward? What's the best way for clinicians and researchers to partner with and support people with disabilities and their families? How can we reach underserved populations and elevate diverse perspectives as we work to build a more inclusive movement?
