Dyslexia

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 (Positive Dyslexia), 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.

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences. Spanning the month of November a range of interactive virtual and physical events will be free and open to the public - find out more about our other events as we discuss Our Changing World!
