NANT – 11th Anniversary Video


The annual NANT Conference is the only one of its kind in the world. It serves an international group of neonatal OTs, PTs, and SLPs in order to advance the specialized knowledge and skills required to work in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

The conference allows attendees to experience leading-edge presentations on a range of neonatal therapy topics, interact with exhibitors who supply products and services to the field, and network with colleagues from around the globe

Attendees can access professional posters where colleagues can view findings and interact with presenters.

In summary- the NANT Conference has six key elements:

  • CE credit upon completion for OT, PT, SLP
  • 3- day International Conference
  • Virtual Exhibits
  • Professional Posters
  • Sponsor Related Offerings
  • Networking Opportunities


The overall objectives of the conference are:

  1. Identify current evidence related to neonatal therapy interventions utilized in the NICU. 
  2. List evidence-based feeding practices and innovations for the neonatal population.
  3. Recognize interventions utilized in the NICU that support infant neuroprotection and neurodevelopment.
  4. List strategies to improve family-centered care in the NICU.

(Multiple speakers present, each with own learning objectives.)

NANT strives to offer attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and guests an experience that encompasses all of our Core Values while delivering a quality program that is well constructed and delivered with customer service in mind.
