Why Do You Return to ResearchILD’s Learning Differences Conference?

“What attracts me to this particular conference is that sense of belonging to a community who really cares about data, cares about research.”

– Lou Salza, educator

Every year educational professionals from across the United States and as far away as Bermuda, South Africa, and Singapore attend ResearchILD’s Learning Differences Conference. Many return year after year. What brings them back? Lou Salza, a widely respected educator in his field, explains:

Presentations from experts in the fields of executive function, social-emotional learning, and learning differences (including ADHD and ASD) will focus on research and practical implications that address the needs of all students, especially those with learning and attention challenges.

Dr. Lynn Meltzer, President and Director of the Institutes for Learning and Development and conference founder, will chair the program. Featured speakers include:

We are fortunate to be able to bring together many of the leading experts in the field to help educators address the needs of all students who struggle with attention, stress, anxiety, and learning challenges in their daily lives.” — Dr. Lynn Meltzer
