The Mission of the Midwest Symposium for Leadership in Behavior Disorders (MSLBD) is to foster leadership that advances equitable education opportunities and outcomes for students with behavioral needs, and to support the professionals and families with who they are connected.
or the 41st year, the Midwest Symposium for Leadership in Behavior Disorders will address cutting- edge issues of interest to professionals working with students with emotional/behavioral disorders and autism spectrum disorders. Join us at the Sheraton KC Hotel at Crown Center, February 23 - 25, 2023.
