LDA's 60th Annual International Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada

60 years ago, at LDA's very first conference, Dr. Samuel Kirk coined the term "learning disabilities," which would spark a national movement for progress for individuals with learning disabilities, including legislation, programs, services, and funding for LD research. Ever since, LDA is proud to offer annual conferences that aim to raise awareness about LD and provide individuals, educators, families, and professionals with the latest information on learning disability topics. 

Tribal education departments and tribal educators interested in making sure that Native American students are college ready will find many sessions at the LDA Conference addressing key issues for secondary and post-secondary success.

Sessions of particular interest may be:

  • Understanding Evolving Learning Disability Documentation Requirements in Postsecondary Education
  • The Misconceptions of Faculty about Post-Secondary Students with Disabilities.
  • Updates at ETS: New Tele Assessment Guidance and Tips for Assisting Test Takers with Accommodation Requests
  • Preparing middle and high school students now…for life after high school!
