iaedp Symposium 2018


Omni Championsgate
Orlando, FL
March 22 – 25, 2018

Call for Proposals

iaedp™ Symposium 2018's program is being created by a group of professionals like you who work in therapeutic settings with patients. It is our goal to provide an exciting, quality program that is applicable to your needs when working with patients.

Another goal, however, has to do with your experience at the conference. We select locations that provide a vacation-like experience. As part of registration, we offer breakfasts, lunches and parties at the end of learning days that allow you to reconnect with colleagues to relax and network. Surrounded by 36 holes of championship Orlando golf, the Leadbetter Golf Academy World Headquarters and 15 acres of recreation, this Four Diamond resort is one of the nation's premier golf, meeting and leisure retreats equipped with every modern convenience and a host of luxury amenities. You may choose to relax in the signature Mokara spa, dine in one of the seven restaurants or enjoy 15 acres of pools and recreation activities including a 850-foot lazy river. The resort offers secluded luxury, yet easy access to area attractions like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Complimentary scheduled shuttle transportation is provided to the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks. The resort is located just 25 minutes from the Orlando International Airport and 20 minutes from Universal Studios and SeaWorld. The Omni at Championsgate will treat you to an experience that is truly a world apart. Make your plans to leave the rest of the world behind! Join us at iaedp™ Symposium 2018 for another exciting program in a luxurious setting.
