Greetings Friends!  The Arkansas Cross Disability Conference and Day at the Capitol for Individuals with Disabilities will now take place October 16th-19th, 2016. We will conclude at the state capitol on October 19th with the signature event,  the Day at the Capitol.



In those changing systems, we as professionals are now living, shopping, playing, worshipping, and working next to the people we support. The boundaries are disappearing for individuals living with disabilities.


Whether the professionals attending are clinician, researcher, academic teacher, policy leader, administrator or hands-on professional, what do these changes mean to them now and in the future? Being a professional is part identity, part skills, part vision, and part commitment to serving individuals with disabilities diversely across the board.

Who is the Captive Audience?


ALL  individuals disabilities will attend the entire event “FREE” !   A big “Thank you”  to our sponsors.

·       Educators & researchers

·       Therapists & clinicians

·       Caregivers & family members

·       Legislators

PLEASE NOTE: All others will pay a flat fee of $189 that includes conference material and meals that are included.

The conference will provide meaningful information to use on a daily basis and for a lifetime.  Our philosophy is that all individuals despite the disability to be equal members and productive in society.  Some individuals require more accommodations than others but the end result is the rights and privileges given to everyone.
