2021 International Conference on Learning Disabilities

The 2021 Annual Conference will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 14 and 15, 2021!

The Council for Learning Disabilities’ (CLD) 43rd International Conference on Learning Disabilities will focus on the education of persons with learning disabilities (LD) from birth through adulthood.

We encourage proposals that:

  • address the construct of LD (including assessment for eligibility and classification)
  • present primary research on LD (including intervention and assessment practices)
  • describe secondary research on LD (including literature reviews and meta-analyses)
  • translate research into evidence-based instructional strategies;
  • critically examine the education of students with LD from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds
  • pertain to policy at the local, state, and federal levels;
  • address topics relevant to higher education (including teacher preparation, mentorship of pre-tenured faculty and graduate students, and research methodology)
  • explore positive behavior supports for people with LD

The Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD), an international organization composed of professionals who represent diverse disciplines, is committed to enhancing the education and quality of life for individuals with learning disabilities across the life span. CLD accomplishes this by promoting and disseminating evidence-based research and practice related to the education of individuals with learning disabilities. In addition, CLD fosters (a) collaboration among professionals; (b) development of leaders in the field; and (c) advocacy for policies that support individuals with learning disabilities at local, state, and national levels.
