2022 DDP Conference

NAQ has been hosting an annual conference for Developmental Disability Professionals since 1996 - providing an avenue for connecting with other professionals, sharing evidence based best practices, and serving as a resource for learning and continued education. A great deal has changed since that debut event but our focus on providing outstanding tools and resources to DDPs has not waivered. NAQ is delighted to announce that our 2022 in-person event will be held August 2-5, 2022 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, LA. Attendees of the in-person event are required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 and proof of vaccination must be submitted at the time of registration. For those who are unable or prefer not to be vaccinated, we are offering a virtual option from August 17 - 18, 2022. The theme - "Moving Forward: A Future of Possibilities" - reflects NAQ's commitment to creating a bright future for Developmental Disability Professionals. Attendees can look forward to learning about innovative & practical solutions that help us move beyond the challenges we face.
