DLD symposium

Although I discarded most of my old paper materials in the last millennium, I still find files and folders every now and again. Recently I found a three-page document with the schedule for a symposium sponsored by the Division for Learning Disabilities in 1988. Bernice Wong and Tom Scruggs invited a group of people to assemble at Perdue University and discuss intervention research in Learning Disabilities. I was flattered to be among them.

In conference-like fashion, each researcher presented (three times) a paper on the research she or he had been conducting. Outside of the conference presentations, we all gathered at other times to discuss research methods and similar topics. Later, most folks who contributed to the symposium rewrote her or his presentation as a chapter for a book that Tom and Bernice edited.

Anyway, if anyone’s interested, here’s a link to download a PDF of the symposium schedule.
