We’re Flying our Kite High in the Land Down Under!
Lindamood-Bell traveled to Brisbane, Australia in September to present our research at the Asia Pacific Autism Conference. Lindamood-Bell’s results with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders were featured. Researchers and educators from around the world gathered to share their latest findings about a range of important topics about Autism Spectrum Disorders. It was an honor for Lindamood-Bell to participate.
Also in September, Lindamood-Bell was a featured presenter at the Education and Neuroscience Conference series in New Zealand. We presented our research findings in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin, spanning the North and South Islands. We met educators, administrators, and parents from around the country – nearly 1,000 people. It was thrilling to be among the presenters in this first of its kind event, sponsored by the Gaze Foundation.
Traveling again to Brisbane after the New Zealand conference series, we presented our research findings at the Joint Conference on Learning Difficulties. While here, we had the opportunity to present learning results from students who attended our Learning Centers over the last seven years. Student results from our Australia Learning Centers were highlighted at this triennial conference hosted by the Learning Difficulties Australia, SPELD Queensland, and the Learning Support Teachers’ Association, Queensland Inc. We had a full house—over 120 teachers attended our presentation—and we had many more stop by our booth in the exhibit area. It was a pleasure to meet so many educators across Australia at this exciting two-day event!
