Since the early 1970’s, Pete has been active with The Orton Dyslexia Society and the Association for Children and Adults with Learning Disabilities, now known as LDAA. In the 1970’s he presented papers about the relationship between learning disabilities and juvenile delinquency at the national conferences of both organizations.
As an attorney, Pete continues to be involved in the field of special education. He has spoken at Orton Dyslexia Society, ChADD and LDAA annual national conferences on “How To Secure an Appropriate Special Education for Your Child and Avoid Due Process.” He has presented a number of continuing legal education seminars in different states to attorneys in regard to the representation of special education children.
