So what’s in store for International Conference delegates in April 2018?

As the title suggests this conference will seek to explore and interpret how research impacts within a practical setting and can therefore assist those providing support to individuals who are dyslexic with effective tools to improve and develop the support they provide backed up by a solid evidence base.

The BDA are delighted to announce that we have secured some stellar, and international, keynote speakers who are leaders in their field. This is a unique opportunity for conference delegates to have access to such a line up. Definitely a “Not to be Missed” event.

Taking the lead will be our conference Chairperson Professor Susan Gathercole OBE, she will be joined by a host of keynote speakers, some of which we explore in more detail on our dedicated Keynote Speakers page.

In addition to the keynote speakers there will be dedicated conference streams, with top draw speakers, covering dyslexia and associated neuro-diversity in the context of employment as well as the cross section of education.

Included within the conference programme will be the opportunity for delegates to enjoy master classes, demonstrations and engage with a whole range of topics covering a cross section of support practices and sectors. Parents/carers will also have a dedicated event taking place on Saturday where a variety of notable speakers, including Dr Lindsay Peer CBE, who will be offering information on a range of topics.

Within the exhibition hall exhibitors will showcase resources and services to support individuals who are dyslexic and those working in the field.
