Combined 11th Australasian Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine and the 3rd International Alliance of Academies of Childhood Disability 'Better Together' Conference 2022
This webpage is a resource for all presenters, providing guidelines, instructions as well as tips and tricks for preparing for your virtual presentation.
- Accessibility: our audience includes people with disability, family members and carers. We encourage you to think about accessibility in your presentation. Use plain language, think carefully about jargon terms, and use large font and simple graphs. And add subtitles to your presentation video; we promise it’s easier than you think!
- International audience: our audience includes people from across the world, with many languages. Make sure your presentation is clear and speak slowly and clearly so the international audience can understand.
- Interactivity: this is a fully virtual conference. Try to make your session as engaging and fun as you can.
- Take home message: we encourage you to include a final slide with key take home messages. Consider what your research means for people with disability and their families as well as clinicians

We ask that you make sure to consider that your pre-recorded presentations are accessible, we have provided some helpful tips and resources below to guide you in preparing accessible presentations.
- Language: use plain language and avoid or explain jargon or technical terms
- Fonts: use large (at least 24 point), simple, san serif fonts (e.g., Arial, Verdana, Helvetica)
- Colours: Use high contrast colours. Do not use colour as the only method for distinguishing information.
- Subtitles: add subtitles to your recording. It’s easy and we have lots of instructions and guidance on how to do this.
- Outline: For interactive sessions, consider displaying an outline at the beginning of your talk, so that audience members know what to expect during the presentation.
- Content of slides: Minimize the amount of text on slides, limit visuals or use simple visuals. Describe images, graphs and charts and read out important quotes or definitions.
- Advancing slides: keep animations and transitions between slides simple and not distracting, pause when advancing a slide to let people read it before saying anything.
