Hear What Everyone is Saying About the LDA Conference!


“I have to say theory really meets practice at the LDA conference. This is a tremendous resource for teachers at every level…best in-service ever, and all in one week. I found:

  • Solutions for struggling readers
  • How to cope with the impact of ever-changing regulations
  • Lots of ideas to take right back to my classroom

I also found other teachers working through similar issues.”


“As a parent of children with learning disabilities, I was amazed at the many sessions offered at the LDA conference that really made a difference in how I support my kids. Even though I have done lots of reading about LD the conference was great because:

  • Information was so much better than all the websites – in depth
  • I could ask questions about my children
  • I met other parents

I also learned there is help and resources are available in my community. Speakers were happy to talk to us–it was helpful to see lots of ideas and support in the exhibit hall and bookstore. The post secondary option fair gave us many ideas for transitioning our kids.”
