COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019)
COVID-19 is an emerging respiratory disease and there is more to learn about its transmission, clinical course, and populations at increased risk of disease and complications. As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, the CDC strongly encourages event organizers to prepare for the possibility of outbreaks in their communities. To limit exposure to COVID-19, Let's Talk LD may have to modify, postpone, or cancel large events for the safety and well-being of our event staff, participants, and the community. We will keep you updated via our website and social media channels regarding updates to Conference schedules. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Our 2021 College Planning & Transition Conference and Resource Fair for Individuals who are Neurodiverse continues to serve as a wonderful reminder of the many opportunities and paths available to young people with learning differences whose ambitions are to transition to college and on to the world of work. The Conference will be livestreamed on Saturday, October 2. Last year's Keynote Speaker, Lydia XZ Brown's issued a powerful call to action to demand equity and justice as we seek to improve education and employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. Dr. Erinn Fears Floyd's Keynote address (Sunday) reminded us to both recognize and celebrate our gifts, in whatever form they may come.
We are grateful to each and every one of you who spent the day with us. The day would not have been possible without the financial support of those whom each year have consistently believed in the promise of our College Conference. If you are interested in serving as a donor or sponsor, please reach out to our Executive Director, KD Harris. We are also so very thankful to those of you who have supported Let's Talk LD and the College Conference by volunteering your time or offering an in-kind gift. Finally, none of this work would be possible without the extraordinary thought leadership of the Let's Talk LD Directors and Advisors. It was our honor and pleasure to produce the Conference in service to a community that means so much to us.
