Posted on February 13, 2019

This year's CEC Conference was quite the event in Indianapolis! We loved having the opportunity to see many of you at the invited sessions, showcase, business meeting, and the reception featuring the annual Student Poster Session.  Read on to learn more about the excitement and to see a few snapshots of the events!
 
Committee Meetings
Each DLD Committee took time to meet with their members and plan ahead for the upcoming year.  Committee membership is a great way to get involved and we are always looking for individuals who are willing to serve.  If you are interested in joining a committee, please visit our committee page and contact the chair for how to get involved.
 
CEC Invited Session and DLD Showcase
This year, DLD waas fortunate to host two panels providing current and relevant research on the topic of Learning Disabilities.
  • DLD Invited Session: Dyslexia: A Conversation about How to Align Practice with Research and Legislation
  • DLD Showcase: The State of Learning Disabilities: Issues Related to Definition and Identification
Thank you so much to all of our panel participants and our moderators, Kristin Sayeski and Stephanie Al Otaiba!
