Dr. Lalor received his doctoral degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Connecticut’s Neag School of Education.
Dr. Lalor’s Conference Session is entitled College Transition: Finding and Accessing the Services that "Fit"
For students with disabilities, it is critical that that disability and universally-available support services are considered during the college transition process. Research has shown that accessing such services predicts persistence and graduation. Join Dr. Adam Lalor, a former disability services professional and admission officer, for a presentation about searching for and accessing disability and non-disability services in college that will fit your specific needs. Q&A will follow.

Let's Talk LD mission is to drive systemic change that is focused on closing equity, opportunity, and achievement gaps for neurodivergent individuals in the areas of education, employment, and civic engagement. Our organization accomplishes this by providing services, building communities-of-practice, developing programs, and producing and delivering content focused on student advocacy, parent and caregiver education, and professional learning opportunities for educators and practitioners designed to improve PK-12 learning outcomes and post-secondary attainment for individuals who are neurodiverse. Our work is shaped by community and youth organizing efforts that seek educational and social justice for marginalized youth.
