Summer Institute Information & Registration

The following information is for Summer 2021 - thank you for a great summer of in-person and virtual courses!

During these uncertain times, we continue to seek ways to meet your professional development needs.

As a result of COVID-19, we have modified our Summer Institute to a virtual format, with a limited amount of in-person spaces the second week, in order to ensure the safety of our participants, speakers, and staff.  We remain committed to bringing you professional development options that provide instructional strategies, resources, and tools to help you support your students with specific learning disabilities (SLD).
