The Learning Disabilities Association of NJ (LDANJ) is a nonprofit organization of families, general and special educators, and outside professionals with the mission of sharing information and providing resources about Learning Disabilities. LDANJ and the Learning Disabilities Association of Michigan (LDAMI) are sponsoring a two-day virtual conference on Friday, Oct. 15 and Saturday, Oct. 16 for parents/families, educators, professionals, adults with LD, and students 14+ who are interested in learning more about various topics related to Learning Disabilities, attention issues, and related disorders.
Over the two days there will be 12 keynotes, including the following presenters: LeDerick Horne, George McCloskey, Chris Dendy, Caroline Maguire and Nancy Mather. There will also be 52 workshops including information about dyslexia, executive function, personal stories, evaluations, IEPs, COVID-19 impact, environmental issues, college and work, anxiety, gap year, and more!
Many workshops are relevant to any student and to residents of any state, but all are relevant in New Jersey. Attendees can go to one or more workshops during the day and get a certificate of attendance for up to five hours PDUs (Professional Development Units) each day. Since the conference is virtual, there is no travel and you can eat breakfast and lunch when you want.
Registration ends Oct. 13. One day admission is $25 for LDA Members, $50 for conference and membership, and $75 for nonmembers. Admission for both days is $50 for LDA Members, $75 for conference and membership, and $100 for nonmembers. Full conference details are on the website www.LDANJ.org Events.
