We are happy to announce our 13th Literacy and Learning Conference held on April 14th and April 15th, 2023. After a long break, we look forward to resuming our educational activities in person!

Please join us in supporting parents and professionals seeking to improve the lives of children who struggle to learn to read. This conference provides a forum for teachers, parents, physicians, psychologists, resource specialists, and speech-language pathologists to connect, communicate and collaborate to improve outcomes for students with dyslexia.

The conference will include acclaimed national and international speakers. We’re happy to announce that we have secured Dr. Tracy White-Weeden, President and CEO of Neuhaus Education Center and Mr. Christopher Such, author of the very popular book “The Art and Science of Teaching Primary Reading”.

The program will open Friday, April 14, with the Literacy Leader of the Year Awards, a Networking Reception and an opportunity to explore the offerings from our exhibitors and silent auction. Our special guest Christopher Such will also be at the reception for a book signing.
