2021 Apraxia Kids National Conference Top 5 FAQs
Why are you offering a hybrid conference for 2021?
Answer: Due to the ever-changing nature of travel and gathering rules and regulations, we recognize that not everyone will be comfortable with or be able to travel to the 2021 conference in-person. We want to make sure the benefits of our Apraxia Kids National Conference is as accessible as possible in these current times. Apraxia Kids is continuing to monitor travel restrictions, gathering regulations, and other contributing factors to holding an in-person event. Should circumstances not allow for an in-person event, Apraxia Kids will make the determination to hold the conference virtually.
What does a hybrid conference mean?
Answer: The 2021 National Conference will have an in-person option for those who wish to attend the conference in Plano, Texas, and a virtual option for those who wish to stay home and view the conference online. The virtual option will stream the conference in real time. As we continue to plan this unique conference experience, additional details will be shared about what conference sessions will look like.
Will I have access to all of the sessions if I choose the virtual option?
Answer: No. The virtual option will stream the conference in real time so you will still need to select the sessions you are interested in attending. We will be sharing additional details regarding session selections in prior to registration opening for the National Conference as we are still working out details.
Does my registration include travel and hotel costs?
Answer: No. The conference registration includes your admission to the conference sessions, conference materials, an opening reception, and breakfast & lunch for in person attendance. You must make and pay for your own hotel and travel arrangements. Discounted hotel information will be shared when registration opens.
Will American Speech-Language–Hearing Association (ASHA) continuing education credits (CEUs) be available for both virtual and in person attendees?
Answer: Yes. Provided participants comply with all requirements, ASHA members who use the CEU Registry are eligible to receive ASHA CEUs for attending the conference based on the sessions attended (either in person or virtually). A Certificate of Attendance is available for those who track their own CEUs.
