This annual conference focuses on issues and developments concerning the education of students K–12 who experience difficulties learning in the mainstream classroom setting. SLC aims to advance the provision of quality education programs for these students with additional learning needs.

Areas addressed during this conference will include accountability and assessment, behaviour management, literacy and numeracy, social skills instruction, and results of research projects being conducted in schools. Presentations will be made by academics, consultants, and practitioners from all education sectors within New South Wales and invited speakers from interstate and overseas.

Participants may attend the conference as a stand alone event, or as part of the Certificate in Educational Studies (Learning Support). For teachers living outside the wider Sydney metropolitan region, it is possible to attend the Tuesday evening certificate workshops by video-conference.
