A New Look For the CLD Annual Conference

CLD’s Board of Trustees has restructured the 33rd International Conference on Learning Disabilities.

They have done this in response to the need for

  • (a) more in-depth evidence-based, practitioner-oriented workshops,
  • (b) opportunities for researchers to discuss their work and learn more from one another about approaches to research design and related statistics, and
  • (c) dissemination of the latest policy information that affects individuals with LD and those who work with them.

The Program Chair is soliciting half-day and full-day evidence-based sessions on topics in research interventions, as well as on policy that is related to LD.

Two-hour cracker-barrel sessions in each topical area are also being solicited.  A one-hour poster session will be another feature of the 2011 conference and will be held in conjunction with the President’s Social and Award Presentations.

As always, networking opportunities will be a main feature of the conference.

Send completed proposal to

  • Program Chair
  • 1095 East King Street
  • Boone, NC 28607
