After thorough review and careful consideration of the CDC's latest Covid-19 recommendations on social distancing, ACLP has decided to transform the 2020 Child Life Annual Conference into an interactive, virtual event. Visit the 2020 Child Life Virtual Conference website.

Participate in the Child Life Virtual Conference as ACLP presents the latest research, innovations, and  techniques for Certified Child Life Specialists (CCLSs), educators, students, and other child life professionals at all professional levels.

With a virtual conference registration, you will have the opportunity to earn more than 60 PDUs in all domains required for recertification by participating in live and recorded sessions available through ACLP's Online Learning Portal. And, you will have access to this content for an entire year. 

At this time, social distancing is critical and forgoing an on-site, in-person conference is in the best interest of our extended child life community and the country as a whole. We appreciate your patience, understanding, and support as we work to create a re-imagined, innovative conference experience for you and your child life colleagues.

Thank you for your individual service during this national state of emergency. We look forward to your participation in this virtual conference and hope it will provide the professional and emotional support you need during these challenging times.
