Highlights from DLD’s Student Poster Session at CEC Tampa

Kristi Baker

The Division of Learning Disabilities (DLD) hosts an annual student poster session and reception at the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) conference to highlight student research. Students are welcome to submit proposals about their research on various topics of learning disabilities (LD). Posters often range from unpublished mini literature reviews to results of randomized control trials. Members of the committee conduct blind peer review of the proposals and provide students feedback on submissions. For the 2018 CEC conference, ten proposals were accepted and presented. The poster session is not only an opportunity for students to highlight their research, but is also an opportunity for students to meet and interact with other students and researchers who specialize in improving outcomes for students with LD.

In 2018, Kristi Baker, Doctoral student at Southern Methodist University, was responsible for organizing the blind peer review of these proposals and ensuring the event was the success.
