This event brings together key speakers who have had experience of working with dyslexic students and staff and assistive technology, and will include the personal experience of a dyslexic ex-student. The speakers will focus on their experiences of using assistive technology to support study skills and creative learning, building links with other support services across institutions and speak about equality legislation and the current drive in inclusivity in higher education institutions. The day is intended to be highly participative and there should be ample scope to share good practice, concerns and questions in general with both your fellow attendees and the speakers.
