Please note that the physician workshop has been cancelled due to insufficient registration.

Conference program is now available online here.

Early bird registration is open until April 30th. Register here.

We encourage you to visit our CO-OP workshops tab to learn about our interactive activities and learning opportunities:

Pre-conference Workshop:

The Comprehensive CO-OP Workshop will take place in two parts: Part 1, comprising two days, will be a face-to-face workshop, held in the pre-conference period; Part 2, comprising the equivalent of one day, will be an on-line workshop scheduled about 4 months after Part 1 at a time that suits the needs of the participants (several scheduling options will be made available). 

Post-conference Workshop:

The post-conference workshop is an introductory workshop offering six hours of interactive lectures and learning exercises designed to provide participants with a basic understanding the Approach, its theoretical foundations and the evidence supporting its use with a variety of populations. The course provides an overview of the seven Key Features of CO-OP and how they are implemented in practice. 

At the end of this course, participants will be able to determine the applicability of the CO-OP Approach to their work, be it practice or research. Note: This course does not provide any practice competencies.

Please note that CO-OP registration is separate from the DCD-14 conference. Please register here.

POST-CONFERENCE Workshop for Physicians

Physicians’ Role in Assessing, Diagnosing, and Managing DCD

Saturday, July 9, 2022 1-3 PM (PT) at Sheraton Wall Centre

This workshop is designed for physicians to better understand their role in the assessment, diagnosis and management of DCD in the office setting. The focus will be on school aged children and the format will include case-based learning and opportunity for questions and or case discussion from the participant’s own practice. The DCD Toolkit for Physicians will help guide discussion.


DCD-14 An In-Person Conference

We are excited to announce that, after much careful consideration, DCD-14 will go forward as an in-person conference.  Author notifications will be sent in the next few days and registration will open shortly.  We will send out an e-blast to notify you of the opening of registration for four distinct events: – the conference, the soiree at Gross Mountain, the pre-conference CO-OP workshop (a hybrid event at UBC) and the post-conference CO-OP introductory workshop (also a hybrid event at UBC)!  We encourage you to book your hotel accommodation at the same time as you register as spaces at the conference hotel will be limited.  

We are also pleased to announce that given we have all had to deal with COVID, we will be, temporarily, reopening the abstract submission page on the website for those of you who have late-breaking data or are now in a better position to submit your work! Submissions are due by March 1.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Vancouver, 

your conference committee
