Come to Atlanta in February 2018
LDA’s mission is to create opportunities for success for all individuals affected by learning disabilities and to reduce the incidence of learning disabilities in future generations. LDA believes everyone can succeed at school, at work, in relationships, and in the community – if given the right opportunities and supports as needed. Please plan on joining us for our 55th Annual International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on February 21-24, 2018, for a time of learning and discovering how we can advocate and work together to create new opportunities for children and adults with learning disabilities.
We're still planning all the great sessions, networking opportunities and more in Atlanta. Bookmark this page and check back often!
Read what everyone is saying about the LDA Conference!
- The Conference was excellent. All the keynote speakers were very inspiring and shared wealth of information. It helped me reflect on my teaching and ways on how to improve in teaching my students with special needs.
- I learned so much this year, especially new assistive technology ideas that I’ve already been able to implement. Also, the networking with other educators is fantastic!
- This was my first LDA conference and I could not have asked for a better experience.
- As a parent, I was amazed at the many sessions offered that really made a difference in how I support my kids. This was a great conference for me for several reasons: 1) in depth information; 2) speakers willing to talk to me and answer my questions, and 3) I met other parents who could totally relate to my situation.
