Dear Colleagues,


The field of learning disabilities (LD) progresses when we learn from each other. Please respond to this Call for Proposals to Present at the 25th Annual World Congress on Learning Disabilities.


“Infusing Inclusion: Initiating Interest in Innovative Ideas”

September 8-9, 2017,

Orlando, Florida


The roster of local, national and international presenters needs you. Sessions will include researchers, professor, general and special educators, related service providers, administrators, and advocates. These skilled individuals will provide the latest information on theory, best practices and policy for children and adults with learning disabilities. You are invited to be among those presenters and authors who desire to share their expertise with a larger audience. To submit a paper, a symposium, a poster, or an e-poster, please follow these guidelines. There is no limit to the number of presentations submitted by a single author or team of authors. We will publish a volume of proceedings from the 25th Annual World Congress on Learning Disabilities as well. This compilation of works will involve the best practice and/or research presentations and the works will go through a review process prior to being included in the proceedings. Please note that you do not need to be present at the conference to submit an abstract for an e-poster presentation and/or a paper. However, you do need to register for at least one day of the conference for consideration.

If you are planning to stay near the conference site, we will provide you a list of hotels for you to choose from when your proposal has been accepted. The hotels will offer you the LDW World Congress special rate.

Thank you, we look forward to seeing and learning from you in September 2017.

Teresa Allissa Citro, Chief Executive Officer, and the 25th World Congress Chairs!
