In 2021, this biennial conference will be providing evidence-based practice to assist classroom teachers, home tutors and support/inclusion personnel in supporting students who experience difficulties with learning.

We are seeking submissions for research papers or practical workshops on all aspects of meeting the learning needs of students in a variety of settings.

Highlights for this years conference will include workshops from lecturers, learning support and classroom practitioners and other practitioners who are using evidence based practice programs.






For 2021, the theme for the conference is “RELEVANCE and REVELATIONS: Responding to Learning Difficulties”. The conference will consist of both formal presentations and a series of interactive workshops. Topics include theory and practice workshops and papers.

Attendees range from academics, classroom practitioners, parents including home schooling tutors,  and university students.
At past conferences, a “hands on” approach, which is supported by keynote speakers, paper presentations and workshops, has proven successful.
