About the Conference

The Academic Language Therapy Association (ALTA) is excited to announce its 2024 Annual Conference: A River of Knowledge: Navigating data to improve student success!

ALTA’s 2024 National Conference serves as an opportunity to advance our collective understanding of dyslexia and create a professional learning community. We invite researchers, educators, clinicians, and advocates to participate, exchange ideas, and work toward enhancing the quality of services to promote student success. The ALTA annual conference provides members an opportunity to gain up to 11.5 CEs. Please note that all sessions will take place at the Marriott Little Rock.

Join us at the Little Rock, Arkansas, as we journey down the River of Knowledge and together promote best practices for meeting the needs of those with dyslexia.
