2021 Student Posters

Content Student 3

DLD sponsors special competitions for students to present their research during the DLD’s reception at the annual meeting of the Council for Exceptional Children. Initiated in 2006 by then student representative Catherine A. Griffith, these sessions have become a regular feature at DLD receptions. They provide an opportunity for students to present research to a large body of interested visitors including many eminent scholars in the area of learning disabilities. Since we were not able to meet in person at the 2021 CEC Conference this year our students have graciously prepared videos of their posters.
