PBIDA 37th Annual Conference on Literacy and Learning Disabilities

This year’s Pennsylvania Branch of the International Dyslexia Association Conference includes a robust program designed especially for parents of children with learning disabilities.

With a dramatically reduced conference rate for parents of only $50, 8 of 23 breakout sessions specifically designed for parents, the opportunity to hear about current research at the Keynote address by Dr. Laurie Cutting, AND breakfast and a box lunch, this is just the place for your parents on October 9. Of course, we have our usual full program for teachers and other professionals as well.

Any parent who registers for the conference for the very first time AND emails the office at to let us know they have never been an IDA member, will receive a free one year membership to the International Dyslexia Association, a $45 value. Our continued thanks to all those parents who support PBIDA with your membership for enabling us to make a positive impact for children with dyslexia!
