2022 International Conference on Learning Disabilities

The 2022 Annual Conference will be held in Richmond Virginia on October 20 and 21, 2022.
The Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD) 44th  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
