WDRPA is that “village” and we clearly are committed to helping people across the globe, and anyone with a COVID concern can present because it still fits.

About the theme:

Each year, the WDRC develops a new theme based on input from the previous year’s conference attendees, which are taken into consideration by the conference chairperson in an effort to reflect inspiring and critical ideas in both fields of Disability and Rehabilitation.

This year, through the input of a number of participants and other professionals. The theme is “IT Takes a villageAccessing Disability Services across the globe”.  The conference theme offers guiding questions for participants, as they reflect on how to present their scholarly, activities and/or policy-oriented work. Here we ask: What does it mean to create a livable planet and what is the role of disability and rehabilitation professionals and scholars in this most necessary of all endeavors? A livable planet demands collaboration across disciplines, ideologies, experiences, and worldviews.
