Welcome

The British Dyslexia Association International Conference is a high profile conference with the key aim of linking academic researchers with practitioners. The conference will be held over 3 days from the 27th to 29th March 2014 at the G-live conference centre in Guildford. The conference will cover all aspects of research related to dyslexia, including identification, theoretical views, intervention and support for children, students and adults.

This year’s conference theme is

‘Creating an Impact through Innovation’, in other words, that innovative research can make a real impact on educational practice. This really gets to the heart of what is special about this conference in particular…’

Dr Julia Carroll: IC Conference Chair

'Given the oft repeated principle that education should be far more ‘evidence based’, the need to build much stronger links between research and practice has never been more urgent. This ninth BDA Conference brings together leading edge researchers, practitioners and policy makers to explore aspects of research that are most likely to promote best practice. It is a timely and valuable opportunity to advance our understanding of the support needed by children who, for one reason or another, struggle to learn in key areas of the curriculum.'
