2021 Learning Difficulties Conference

September 16, 2021 @ 8:00 am - September 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

About the event

The Biennial 2021 Joint Conference for Learning Difficulties is hosted by Speld Qld, LSTAQ and LDA and will be held on 16 and 17 September 2021 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The theme for this year’s Conference is Relevance and Revelations: Responding to Learning Difficulties. The Conference will consist of both formal presentations and a series of interactive workshops. Topics include theory and practice workshops and papers.

Call for Papers

In 2021 this biennial conference will be providing evidence-based practice to assist classroom teachers, home tutors and support/inclusion personnel in supporting students who experience difficulties with learning. We are calling for submissions for research papers or practical workshops on all aspects of meeting the learning needs of students in a variety of settings. This includes (but is not limited to) effective teaching practices and assessment in reading, writing, spelling, mathematics and other learning areas at both primary and secondary levels of schooling as well as the use of technology, student engagement, whole school approaches, working collaboratively with colleagues, and models of inclusion in a mainstream classroom.

Speaker Incentives

Presenters of papers and workshops will receive one free registration to the 2-day conference. Please note that where there are multiple presenters, each additional presenter will pay a reduced registration fee. This fee will include lunches and morning teas. No other incentives are offered.
