LSTAQ (Learning Support Teachers’ Association of Queensland Incorporated)
The Biennial 2019 Joint Conference for Learning Difficulties hosted by SPELD, LSTAQ and LDA was held on the 20 – 21 September 2019 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Keynote speakers well received were:
Day 1 Dr Jennifer Buckingham
Day 2: Mr Bruce Sullivan
The conference had a gold sponsorship in 2019, by the Autism Hub and Reading Centre, Woolloongabba, Qld.
For 2019, the theme for the conference was “INCLUDE, IMPROVE, INSPIRE”. The conference consisted of both formal presentations and a series of interactive workshops. Topics included theory and practice workshops and papers.
Attendees ranged from academics and classroom practitioners through to parents. A “hands on” approach, which is supported by keynote speakers, paper presentations and workshops, has proven successful.
