 A great new websiteIn April 2017  there was  the launch of a new and very  interesting and informative website, http://www.dyslex.io/, at the BDA offices!  This is a really interesting and useful site with many videos too. If there are problems getting on to the website you can go there via the British Dyslexia Association www.bdadyslexia.org,uk . This site is also very useful and accurate.

With an array of mobile technologies now available, how do we determine those that will best support students who struggle with the demands of reading as they progress through their school years? This session will discuss some of the ways in which students can be helped to explore, choose and make best use of emerging technologies. It will also raise awareness of the features that are available on some of the technologies they may already carry with them...
