Welcome Message



On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 1st International Paediatric Neurodisability & Neurorehabilitation Conference on 4-5 November in Dusit Thani, Abu Dhabi, UAE.


This 2-day event is designed to provide a high level, clinically significant updates and comprehensive trends relevant to the practice of Pediatric Neurodisability & Rehabilitation. Our knowledge on the manifestations of the disorders rapidly increases, yet, our understanding of the aetiology and pathogeneses, including early detection and early intervention, is limited.


The conference will offer a superb opportunity for healthcare professionals to share their best practices, to network within the same group of interest, and to create and strengthen clinical collaborations.


We look forward in welcoming you to this conference!
