On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the Australasian Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AusACPDM) it gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend our 7th Biennial Scientific Conference in the Hunter Valley, Australia 11-14 March 2014.

AusACPDM is committed to advancing understanding and awareness of evidence based practice in the field of childhood physical disability and is the key industry touch point for the community.

The AusACPDM Scientific Conference provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, a chance to network with like-minded colleagues and friends as well as the opportunity to discuss the latest research findings and advances.

The 2014 Scientific Conference ‘Breakthrough to Excellence’ offers an extensive scientific program which features many clinical and academic imminent leaders including, Professor Andrew Gordon from Teachers College, Columbia University New York who will focus on Bimanual training and the neuroplasticity of rehabilitation and motor control interventions.

Ian Brown the author of the NY bestseller ‘Boy in the Moon’ will share his immensely moving insights into the profoundly complex challenge of parenting a child with a disability, while Dr Unni Narayanan from the Sick Kids Toronto will discuss Quality of life.

I look forward to welcoming you to the AusACPDM 7th Biennial Scientific Conference 2014 where you will be encouraged to share, discuss, develop and reflect whilst also sampling the delights of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
