The Young Child Expo & Conference began in 2003 as a joint professional development project of Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education and Los Niños Services. Our goal is simple – to provide useful information to professionals and parents in order to help all young children learn, grow and reach their full potential. We aim to bring everyone who works with young children together to learn and grow: teachers, psychologists, special education teachers, social workers, physical, occupational and speech therapists, pediatricians, nurses, educators, academics and students. We were founded by Dr. Scott Mesh CEO of Los Niños Services and Dr. Vincent Alfonso, currently Dean of the School of Education at Gonzaga University. Our New York City conference attracts over 1,500 attendees from around the world.

Presented by Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education and Los Ninos Training , the Young Child Expo & Conference 2016 is a unique forum in New York that brings together early childhood professionals and parents to learn about the latest information, products, services, and resources for early childhood development. The conference program is evenly divided between general topics affecting all children such as speech and social development, sleep issues, behavior challenges, and topics relevant for children with special needs, including autism.
Professionals and parents always want and need to know the latest information about early childhood development, educational and developmental programs, products, resources, and services - and the Young Child Expo & Conference is the perfect venue for you to connect with them!
