Special Interest Division 1 cosponsored the West Coast Summit: Oracy to Literacy—Education, Practice, & Policy in cooperation with the Varian Foundation, Palo Alto, CA, the Center for Educational Research on Dyslexia, the Division of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services and Communicative Disorders and Sciences, San Jose State University, San Jose, CA. The Summit was held on December 12–14, 1997, in Monterey, and the outcomes reported to the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities (NJCLD) in January, 1998, at their winter meeting.
Special invitations had been extended to the Presidents (or their designees) of the 10 associations that make up the NJCLD. They included the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Association on Higher Education and Disability, the Council for Learning Disabilities, the Division for Children's Communication Development and the Division for Learning Disabilities of the International Council of Exceptional Children, the International Reading Association, the Learning Disabilities Association of America, the National Association of School Psychologists, the National Center for Learning Disabilities, and the International Dyslexia Association. Other associations expressed interest, and thus, the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities, the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication, the Center for Development and Learning, and the American Academy of Private Practice in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology participated.
