At this year’s VA DCDT conference, we will feature our second poster symposium, with a focus on “Triangulating Transition: Putting the Pieces Together (Post-secondary Goals, Partnerships, & Planning/Assessment)”.  Our call for proposals window has just opened, and we invite you to spread the word or submit a poster proposal. This is a great opportunity for young scholars, emerging researchers, self-advocates and innovative practitioners to share the work they have been doing, build new connections, and gain feedback and new ideas. Poster submissions are due by Saturday, February 15, 2020.

Call for Vendors:

The Virginia Division of Career Development and Transition (VADCDT) invites you to be a part of our annual conference as a sponsor. This is a curated conference that addresses critical issues in transition for individuals with disabilities. We anticipate approximately 200+ attendees from across the Commonwealth. Attendees are educators, transition specialists, service providers, rehabilitation professionals, health care providers, employers, researchers, family members and self-advocates. In addition to breakout sessions, research poster sessions, and a networking session, vendors/sponsors play key role in the conference experience. Will you join us in sustaining the scholarship of transition in Virginia? If so, here is the place to start. We look forward to working in partnership with you and your organizations.
