Family Links Conference Events Return for 2022

Utah’s longstanding Family Links Conference Events for families of children with special needs are returning for 2022 with some changes in how they are presented. The hope of the planning committee is that new attendance options will make timely information available to more families. Families want information in both virtual and in person formats, so both options will be available this year.

The Family Links Conference is presented by a statewide group of disability organizations who come together to provide a variety of trainings or conferences to parents and families of children, youth, and adults with disabilities and special needs and the professionals who serve them.


There will be at least three separate events planned for 2022 offering multiple opportunities for families and professionals who serve the disability community in Utah to connect and share information.

Thursday, April 14, 2022 – Virtual Conference

The Virtual Conference will have sessions beginning at 10 AM and 11 AM and again in the evening at 7 PM and 8 PM. Registration is now open. Please be prepared to choose your sessions at the time of registration.
