VIRTUAL INTERNATIONAL DYSLEXIA CONVENTION

29/30th July 2020

The need to address dyslexia in a more sympathetically dynamic way is growing globally.

Our modern understanding of: dyscalculia, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyspraxia, and the extent of the numbers of people with these inherited differences in all our communities, is guiding us to realise more effort is needed to ensure their and our wellbeing. 

Manchester’s 1st International Dyslexia Conference will allow over 20 of the world’s leading experts to share their knowledge and expertise in issues related to the condition.

We are pleased to be able to give free access to students.
Please email DyslexiaInstituteUK@gmail.com for further details.
