THE POWER OF US – CONNECTION, COMMUNICATION, COLLABORATION
The CHARGE Syndrome Association of Australasia’s 12th Biennial Conference is being held from Friday 30 September to Sunday 2 October in Surfers Paradise, on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland.
Our aim for the conference is to bring everyone in our community together to connect, communicate and collaborate. We want everyone to leave with practical strategies they can use in their daily lives as well as a feeling of belonging – that no one is alone on this journey.
We will hear from some amazing speakers – some very familiar and some new. And we will cover topics such as CHARGE 101 (the basics of CHARGE syndrome for those new to CHARGE); practical parenting tips; behaviour and anxiety; sensory processing and strategies; planning for the future; one family’s journey; and most importantly we’ll hear from CHARGErs themselves. The 2016 12th Biennial Australasian CHARGE Syndrome Conference flyer provides all the relevant information you need to know.
We have also built in time and space for people to simply connect and share (and enjoy the footy finals!) with the Secret Men’s and Secret Women’s Business sessions. They’ll also be a bit of Fun Chi thrown in!
We’ll also be introducing Club CHARGE for individuals with CHARGE and their siblings. Club CHARGE is a childcare and social program. We anticipate that Club CHARGE will cater to all ages, with specific, on-site activities offered for different age groups to ensure that conference delegates can relax in the knowledge that their children and young adults will be well looked after. There will also be carers and activities for adults with CHARGE who do not wish to participate in the full weekend conference.
