ASDC Conference 2022

Join us for this exclusive family fun-cation | July 21-23, Anaheim, CA

This year, ASDC is putting on a family conference like no other! Instead of holding to the traditional format of two full days of speakers, we are doing something different. We will get together for short presentations in the morning, and then your whole family will head off for a fun-filled “sight/sign-seeing” afternoon field trip designed for families with children of all ages and abilities. Families will also be accompanied by a Deaf ASL role model. Transportation is provided! Your family won’t want to miss this!
