The 24th Annual Family Café
May 27-29, 2022
Since 1998, The Annual Family Café has brought Floridians with all types of disabilities together for three days of information, training, and networking each June. With a great range of individual breakout sessions, a packed Exhibit Hall with dozens of vendors, and a series of special events including Keynote speakers and The Governors’ Summit on Disabilities, The Annual Family Café offers attendees exposure to resources on a grand scale, unprecedented access to policy-making officials, and a chance to network with other individuals with disabilities and their families.
The 24th Annual Family Cafe is scheduled for May 27-29, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando.
Online registration will be available on Monday, February 14, 2022.

The 23rd Annual Family Cafe
The 23rd Annual Family Cafe was held on June 11-13, 2021. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, The 23rd Annual Family Cafe was held as a hybrid event.
The Family Cafe printed a full event program, with descriptions of every breakout session, including both those that were part of the in-person event and those that had been planned for the face-to-face event but could not be delivered live. The program includes contact information for the presenters so families can reach out to them with questions.
We also invited presenters that could not be included in the live virtual event to share their presentation materials with us. A full interactive program with links to presentation materials and recordings from all sessions will be available soon!
Until then, you can view available videos from the on-site agenda at The 23rd Annual Family Cafe in the Videos section of our website.
