Annual Conference

HBIDA’s annual Spring Conference aims to provide the community with a full day of educational opportunities to better understand and support those with learning differences and dyslexia.  A keynote speaker is invited to present during the morning followed by various breakout sessions presented by experts in the field of learning disorders and dyslexia.  Breakout sessions provide attendees with the opportunity to tailor their conference experience to specific areas of interest or need. Vendors, exhibits, and a book store are present during the conference.  The Nancy LaFevers Community Service Award is presented to the recipient during the seated luncheon.  Attendees include parents of children with dyslexia or other learning differences, educators, counselors, school administrators, therapists, community advocates, and clinicians

Registration prior to the conference is required and available online. Onsite registration is not available. A light breakfast, and seated luncheon is included in the registration fee.  The annual updated HBIDA resource directory is also given to those in attendance. ALTA and TSHA CEU’s are available.
