Dyslexia is a learning disability that causes difficulties with reading, writing and spelling. Students with dyslexia can effectively learn with appropriate educational interventions and teaching methods tailored to their specific learning disability. According to some experts, up to 15 percent of the population has dyslexia and related disorders.

This conference is designed to be educational, practical and interactive for professionals as well as parents.
