Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

How often do you organize your family & professional conference?

The LGS Foundation holds our International Family & Professional Conference every 18 months within the United States. We change the location for each conference to a different region so families from all over the country can participate.

 

How long is the conference?

The LGSF Family & Professional Conference is three days long; it starts on a Friday and ends on a Sunday.

What is the price of registration and what's included? 
The price for registration for the 2019 conference will be $250 per adult and $150 for children and adults with LGS. This price includes entry into all sessions Friday - Sunday, breakfast and lunch on all days, the cocktail reception on Friday evening, the dinner on Saturday evening, and all organized activities.

I can't attend; is there a way to view information from the meeting? 
Yes, presenter slides will be posted online after the meeting concludes. We will also be posting live clips from the conference on facebook, so please be sure to follow us: www.facebook.com/lgsfoundation. 


Is childcare available?
NEW for 2019! The LGS / SIBS Day camp is a new program for 2019. We have contracted with Corporate Kids to bring this important program to the next conference. Each person with LGS and their siblings are welcome to sign up to attend. The day camp is staffed with professional aids/supervisors with CPR certifications (one aid is provided for every two people with LGS; one aid is provided for every four sibs). The day camp features age or level appropriate themed activities throughout the day. Corporate Kids will provide their services for Friday and Saturday. For Sunday (since it's a half day), we are asking for parent volunteers for the childcare rooms.

Who attends this meeting?
The audience is typically made up of LGS family members (75%) and epilepsy professionals (25%).
