The British Dyslexia Association are one of the key organisations in Britain who offer a voice for individuals with dyslexia. The BDA offer a plethora of information through their website and events that aid schools, parents and individuals with dyslexia and other associated conditions, such as dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
This is a fantastic opportunity for teachers, parents and individuals who wish to learn more on how to support people with learning disabilities. Throughout the conference, there will be a jam-packed itinerary of seminars and talks that cover topics such as ensuring dyslexic learners are prepared for life after school, the history of dyslexia and using music to support children.
One of our partners, CPD Bytes, also has a seminar on Thursday the 12th of April in room 5. Moira Thomason MBE will be talking about Supporting Learners with Dyslexia in the Secondary Curriculum. For many years, she managed a Support for Learning and Special Needs team in a large Edinburgh secondary school.

For the two days we are at the BDA conference, we will also be showcasing some of the latest equipment, such as OrCam’s MyEye 2.0; an artificial vision device that can help individuals with visual impairments. The device can instantly read text aloud from any surfaces and it recognises money, faces and products.
Of course, we will also be demoing some of our more popular assistive technology products for individuals with dyslexia, such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking and text-speech software like ClaroRead and Read & Write Annual, which will be presented by our specialist Assistive Technology trainers.
