If your child is with regional center they will fund conferences. Regional center provides funding for families to attend conferences such as this one. Please reach out to your regional center case worker (in writing; email is fine) to make that request for reimbursement. Inland Regional Center's policy on their website is $600 per FAMILY per fiscal year (July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018) for conferences and must be in the IPP document.
Lastly, because of the high cost of insurance on childcare we are not able to provide it.
If you have any questions please reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
