Dyslexia: What's New

online event
Thursday 18 November 2021 (18:00-19:00)

Do you have dyslexia or care for a child or young person with dyslexia, or are you a teacher interested in learning more about dyslexia?

In this online event experts from the field of dyslexia will answer your questions on the latest research and current trends to support dyslexic children and young people in education. Participants will be invited to submit questions prior to the event, which will inform short presentations by the experts.

This event will be facilitated by Dr Maria Reraki* (Course lead, PGCert Dyslexia and Literacy Difficulties, University of Birmingham) and Ms Vikki Anderson (Teaching Fellow - Language, Literacies & Dyslexia, University of Birmingham), with an introduction by Professor Margaret Snowling CBE, FBA, FMedSci (University of Oxford) and panellists Katrina Cochrane (British Dyslexia Association - BDA), Neil Mackay (Action Dyslexia) and Dr Harriet Cameron (University of Sheffield).

To have the panel address your questions, please send them to esrciaa@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
