Welcome to the Northern California/East Bay Learning Disabilities Association!
LDA Conference in Anaheim February 2014
Learning Disabilities Association of America is seeking submissions for the 2014 Conference to be held in Anaheim, CA, February 19-22, 2014. Anyone wishing to present a paper, conduct a workshop, provide an informational session, or make a formal 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 best practices and skill building of both children and adults in culturally diverse populations. We are pleased to introduce a new strand for the 2014 LDA Conference entitled, Correctional Education and Justice System.
It is expected that basic, intermediate, 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 is May 15, 2013.
Individuals interested in having a proposal considered for the Anaheim Conference should visit the LDA website and follow the steps for completing and submitting online.
