24th Annual International Conference

Hyatt Regency San Francisco in Embarcadero Center

The annual TRLD International Conference, Technology, Reading & Learning Difficulties, is held each January in San Francisco, California. Currently, the International Reading Association (IRA) is co-sponsor of the TRLD conferences. This conference was founded by Educational Computer Conferences, Inc., first established in 1982, a corporation directed by Diane Frost. The TRLD conference has been recently acquired by Don Johnston Incorporated.

TRLD is the only conference that integrates technology interventions with expert literacy strategies to ensure student success. The Conference brings together educators, experienced literacy leaders and technology experts to share, discuss, and work towards a solution to the nationwide concern of bringing literacy success to all students. Through quality speakers and relevant topics, TRLD give educators ideas and strategies to immediately implement with students with high-incidence disabilities. The TRLD conference offers over 100 sessions to choose from. Over 40 exhibitors will be onsite to present their products. Each participant has the opportunity to attend up to 9 sessions throughout the main conference. There are also three pre-conference sessions available for additional fees.

TRLD is a professional educational conference that:

Community of Learners Café
The community of Learners Café debuted at the 2005 TRLD conference. This was a forum that included registered attendees, speakers and exhibitors. It was such a great success, that plans are underway to sponsor this activity again at the 2006 conference. This activity allowed networking and discussions among all conference participants. A limited number of seats are available to allow for smaller group discussion.

This conference has inspired me to somehow delegate my responsibilities elsewhere and get back to what I love — teaching with technology. Thanks!"
