2020 Annual ALTA Conference

After much thought and discussion, ALTA has decided to cancel the in person conference in Colorado Springs postponed for September 2020. Due to the uncertainty of how COVID-19 will affect travel, school schedules, and teachers we feel it is best to alleviate some of the burdens regarding travel for those who were contemplating attendance. Any registrations already received will have the option to request a full refund by contacting office@altaread.org.

We realize many of you rely on the annual conference for CEUs as well as expanding your knowledge in the area of dyslexia. We are exploring additional options to bring this conference to you virtually. More information and updates regarding this change will be shared soon.

In April 2021 we will see you in Arkansas.  The following year, April 2022 will be in Colorado Springs.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time.
