ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group, Early Intervention Conference

Dear Participants of the Early Intervention Conference,

As a result of the special circumstances and measures taken in Europe in the context of COVID-19, it was decided that the ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group, Early Intervention Conference scheduled to be held on 23 & 24 April 2020 in Leuven, Belgium will not take place. We are looking into the possibility to postpone the ICEVI-Europe Professional Interest Group Early Intervention Conference to a later date, probably in the fall of 2020. As soon as we have more insight into a possible new date, this will be communicated. We would like to thank you for your understanding of the measures taken in light of these exceptional circumstances.

Hans Welling, President of ICEVI-Europe
