Welcome to the BDA's 11th International Conference. I hope that you enjoy your time with us at this fabulous event. Whether your interests lie in neuro science, literacy or numeracy or indeed any of the other topics associated with dyslexia, you will certainly find interesting and enlightening sessions to attend.
Having attended a number of BDA conferences I am always struck by how fortunate we are to be able to bring together so many leading experts from the various fields. To all of our speakers, I would like to say thank you not only for joining us at the conference but for your tireless efforts to increase understanding and knowledge around dyslexia and neuro diversity.
This year we have also included an exhibition within the IC. As a practitioner I have always found it very useful to be able to see, feel and discuss products and services with suppliers face to face. So here again I must say thank you to our exhibitors for providing us with that opportunity.
Finally I would like to fully acknowledge and thank the BDA International Conference committee, our Conference Chair Professor Susan Gathercole, BDA staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to make the International Conference the event that it is. Without their efforts, ideas and commitment the event would not be possible. So please do enjoy the event and I shall look forward to meeting you.
