unnamedDYSCON 2016: Developing Diverse Minds!
Dyslexia is one of the most common learning difficulties encountered by students, parents and educators in the world today with somewhere between one in twenty and one in ten people experiencing some form of Dyslexia. So by any measures this is an extremely important topic!
The Dyslexia Association of Hong Kong (DAHK) is committed to identifying best practice and excellence in research in SEN and to making this available to educators and parents living in Hong Kong and the wider region.
Educators and parents who come to the Asia Pacific Dyslexia Conference (DYSCON) will learn from, and interact with, leading academics in the field. They will also hear from and engage with experienced teacher practitioners about the impact of dyslexia and learning within the classroom setting, and beyond. The conference will take place from 21 – 22 May, 2016 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
