LDA Today - Vol. 1 No. 2 - March/April 2014

We are excited to report the events of the 51st Annual International Conference on Learning Disabilities held in Anaheim, California, in February. Dr. Catherine Collier, the conference opening session Keynote Speaker, shares her perspective on "What Every LD Educator Should Know." Other conference news is highlighted including award winners and election results of LDA officers and directors. Of course we couldn’t hold an event of this magnitude without donors and sponsors who we thank for their support. Now that the 2014 conference has ended, it’s time to plan for the 2015 conference in Chicago. This issue provides information you will need to submit your proposals in the "Call for Proposals."

LDA is in the forefront of providing information that affects students with LD and ADHD. This issue is no exception with information on IEPs and school transfers that will be helpful if you're planning a move or your child is changing schools. Included also is a "Summary of Performance" for students exiting high school and a guide for parents in locating free assistive technology online.

The "LDA President's Annual Report" by Pat Latham, outgoing president, provides an overview of the year’s activities. Myrna Mandlawitz, LDA Director of Public Policy, shares information on the President’s proposed federal budget …"that would fund competitive grants to States to implement State Systemic Implementation Plans focused on improving results for students with disabilities." You also won’t want to miss reports from the Membership/Affiliate Support Committee, the State Presidents' Representative and the Healthy Children Project. We end with a tribute to the late Dr. Rosa Hagin, a true LDA pioneer who will be missed by all who knew her.
