Join our Next LD Talk:
NCLB and Students with LD: Myths, Facts and What the Future Holds
June 30, 2008
1 p.m. ET
During the next LD Talk, our expert, Candace Cortiella, will answer your questions about No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and discuss how and why the National Center for Learning Disabilities is a strong proponent for many of the provisions under NCLB, as they relate to students with learning disabilities.
Please take this opportunity to ask us your most pressing questions about assessment and instruction under NCLB -- tell us about the realities your children or students with learning disabilities face as their schools work to implement NCLB. We want to learn more about the topics under NCLB that are most important to you.
In addition, be sure to visit NCLD's Advocacy Center in early July 2008 to get a first look at NCLD's new publication, Challenging Change, a report that highlights how several schools and school districts are seeing results as they work to improve academic outcomes for students with disabilities under NCLB.
As executive director of the Advocacy Institute, a parent of an adult child with learning disabilities and a member of NCLD's Professional Advisory Board, Candace Cortiella is uniquely qualified to answers your questions, dispel common myths about NCLB and to provide insights into implementing NCLB in the future. Don't miss the opportunity to have this true advocate share her experience and expertise with you.
