Students of today are the leaders of tomorrow. It is important that we build strong, confident, and effective leaders.

Up to an estimated 30% of students have a diagnosable learning disability. is a strong possibility that most classrooms have at least one student with a learning disability.

These students represent 35% of high school dropouts and 70% of juvenile delinquents. Let's change that.

The 2020 Learning Disorder Research Symposium is your chance to:

  • Learn the positive aspects of learning disorders
  • Gain insight on the latest developments of neurological, biological, psychological, and educational learning disorder research
  • Discover innovative ways the community is helping students achieve their goals
  • Learn what you can do to positively impact the educational community and help build strong future leaders
