Green Mountain Support Services is proud to host its 4th Annual Cerebral Palsy Conference. It will be held on October 7th, 2019, at the Holiday Inn in historic downtown Hartford Connecticut.

More than 750,000 Americans live with cerebral palsy, yet information and resources are sparse and difficult to find.  The GMSS Cerebral Palsy Conference was born from the singular vision of one man who lives with cerebral palsy, and who believes that it is vital to spread awareness about this significant developmental condition. 

The New England Cerebral Palsy Conference hosted by Green Mountain Support Services is the only conference of its kind on the entire U. S. East Coast.

Just in the last three years of hosting this event, the interest has more than doubled in size. This year’s conference participants will learn about cerebral palsy, gain knowledge of available supports and services, meet others affected by CP, and be inspired to improve lives.

Our Break Out Sessions:

Conference Attire:

Feel free to dress in casual conference or business casual attire but we highly recommend layers. It is very difficult to control the temperature in large conference spaces – very often too hot or too cold.  Don’t hesitate, bring that extra sweater.

Conference Technology and WI-FI:

Bring extra batteries for phones and laptops as there are limited charging areas.  We are unable to have cords strung across walkways as they pose a tripping hazard. In an effort to provide the best conference experience for all attendees, cell phones should be set to silent during presentations.

Conference Social Media:

When tagging the conference on social media, use #cpne2019
