First Annual USC UCEDD Community Education Conference

May 31, 2016

The USC UCEDD hosted it's first annual community education conference at The California Endowment in Downtown Los Angeles. This one-of-a-kind conference offered 18 sessions focusing on the needs of transitional age youth (ages 14-25) with co-occurring developmental disabilities and mental health issues. Over 180 participants from across the state of California attended the event.

One participant said: "I loved this conference.The topic was excellent. This demographic represents an underserved population on so many levels and it was wonderful to see this intersection of needs addressed. The keynote speaker [Dr. Dan Siegel] was fantastic. The variety of disciplines represented in the audience was also great for learning about what other service providers are doing."
