The SACK conference is a wonderful opportunity for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities to meet, share and learn from each other and experts in the field. Our conference is held annually. Conference participants have the opportunity to choose from learning sessions on a variety of topics. A motivating keynote speaker and other activities are also offered at the conference.
