The 2009 conference is to be held at the same venue as last year but will be reduced in scale. There is one conductor among the announced speakers and no parents.

Some of the academic presentations look to be of considerable interest for Conductive Education worldwide, particularly 'Conductive Education in the USA: yesterday-today-tomorrow', 'Current research efforts on CE: Governors State University', 'A Format for Documenting the Effects of Conductive Education on its Clients', 'Educational and medical research supporting CE' and 'Traditional and non-traditional cases in CE: appropriate candidates'.

One cannot urge too strongly the publication of such papers, at the very least upon ACENA's website, the moment that the conference is over.
