It is conference season!

Conference season has arrived. On Friday the SEND conference took place in the Midlands (UK) and this week the Staffordshire’s (UK) yearly Special Educational Needs conference will provide a holistic resource to supporting those with SEN such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, speech and language, auditory processing and visual processing.

There are several exciting conferences coming in June and throughout the year, just follow this link to see them all. The list is continuously updated so keep an eye on it and if you know of any conferences or are organising one please do get in touch and we will happily add it to our page.

‘Made By Dyslexia’

Last week Richard Branson finally launched his own dyslexia charity. We’ve been expecting this for quite some time, as Branson is probably one of the most vocal person on the planet about dyslexia and its positive attributes!

‘Made By Dyslexia’, as it is called, focuses on how dyslexia has made some of the most creative people throughout contemporary history and how it should not be treated as a disability, but more as an ability. With posters of inspiring dyslexics available to download on their main page, this charity certainly has a fresh and fun attitude; we are excited to see what will come from them in the near future!
