Each year ACLP brings together more than 1,000 child life professionals at the Child Life Annual Conference—the world's largest gathering of child life professionals. It is an unsurpassed opportunity for attendees to enhance their professional development, gain fresh perspectives, meet with colleagues, and form new and lasting relationships within the child life community.
The Child Life Annual Conference advances the field by presenting the latest research, innovations, and techniques for Certified Child Life Specialists (CCLSs), educators, students, and other child life professionals at all professional levels. There are ample opportunities for both formal and informal networking with peers. The conference also features an exhibit hall offering products and services that are of interest to the child life community.
Conference attendees earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) necessary for recertification for the Certified Child Life Specialist (CCLS) credential.
