More than 600 attendees, representing all aspects of the disability community in Arizona and beyond, are expected to attend this year’s Evidence for Success Disability Conference. The conference, one of Arizona’s key disability-related events, is organized by NAU’s Institute of Human Development (IHD) and will be taking place July 14-16 at Fort McDowell Nation’s we-Ko-Pa Resort& Conference Center in Scottsdale/Fountain Hills.

The conference format integrates three of IHD’s project areas into one educational event, including:

  • Assistive technology, which this year is celebrating 20 years as Arizona’s largest, most comprehensive Assistive Technology conference
  • Evidence-based practice in disability disciplines,which for five years has been bridging the research-to practice gap to help professionals implement evidence-based practices
  • American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Training and Technical Assistance Center, a program that supports positive outcomes for tribal members receiving vocational rehabilitation services
