The 18th Annual Family Cafe

The Family Cafe is now accepting presenter proposals for The 18th Annual Family Cafe, which will be held June 10-12, 2016 in Orlando. We would like to invite all qualified, knowledgeable individuals to submit proposals for breakout sessions at our signature event.


The Annual Family Cafe typically includes 160+ individual breakout sessions, addressing a wide range of disability-related topics, from information on specific disabilities, to financial management, youth issues, special education and assistive technology. (For a sampling of the sessions we have offered in the past, you can view programs from previous years in our Publications section.) Last year's Annual Family Cafe attracted 8,925 attendees, and we fully expect to have another large crowd of Floridians with disailbities and their family members on hand in June, 2016.


The Presentation Proposal Form can be found online by following this link this link. Proposals must be submitted by December 17, 2015. All proposals will be reviewed by The Family Cafe Planning Committee, which will notify presenters of their status after the New Year. You can submit your proposal by fax to 850/224-4674, by e-mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or by mail to The Family Cafe, 519 North Gadsden Street, Tallahassee, FL 32301.
Please feel free to duplicate the Presenter Proposal Form and share it with any interested parties in your community. We are looking forward to having yet another comprehensive, informative conference with a range of sessions that address the real-world needs and concerns of our attendees, and we are grateful for whatever help you can offer in making that happen.
