LDA 55th Annual International Conference
Jennifer Harkins, Program Co-Chair
Loreena Parks, Program Co-Chair
Learning Disabilities Association of America is seeking submissions for the 2018 Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia on February 21-24, 2018. Anyone wishing to present a poster, facilitate a table talk or present a formal lecture style presentation is invited to submit a proposal.
LDA values sessions that present current and best practices, including basic information about the nature of learning disabilities as well as innovative approaches to advocacy, assessment, intervention, and instruction. Also sought are sessions that present new ways to ensure successful transition, utilize assistive technology, access the general curriculum, provide a continuum of services, and foster productive adulthood. Of particular interest are hands-on practical techniques for Table Talk and reports of research for Poster Sessions. A special focus will be placed on research of best practices and skill building of both children and adults in culturally diverse populations.
It is expected that basic and advanced presentations will be offered to provide both new and experienced conference attendees current information and opinion on both continuing and evolving topics of interest and concern.
Please note that presenters are limited to one major presentation and that sessions may not promote commercial products and/or services.
Deadline for submissions has been extended until May 1, 2017. Individuals interested in having a proposal considered for the Atlanta Conference should click here and follow the steps for completing and submitting online.
