Call for OADD Conference Abstracts

2021 – A new way to celebrate the Annual OADD Conference

Pivoting to address the challenges of service delivery during COVID has been a struggle for everyone in the developmental services sector. We are looking for presentation abstracts that highlight creative ways to address these challenges. If you or your agency has found a new way to address service delivery, staff issues or the constant re-adjusting of deadlines for the “return to normal” please consider sharing your lessons learned with others through our virtual conference event.  


  • Impact on Services (how do we pivot)
  • Lessons Learned (resilience)
  • Impact on Peoples Mental Health (staff & individuals)
  • How/when to move forward (after COVID?)
  • Creative ideas/strategies/programs

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Deadline for Submissions: November 30th, 2020

Number of Presenters

Presentations should have a minimum of two and maximum of 4 presenters. Presentations will run consecutively
