The Dyslexia Show takes place on the 20th & 21st March 2020 at the National Exhibition Centre Birmingham (NEC).
This is the UK’s first national exhibition specifically in the field of dyslexia. With an estimated 10% of the UK population (around 6.3 million) having some severity of dyslexia, this is one of largest hidden disabilities within the UK today. The Dyslexia Show offers a unique opportunity for all walks of life to come together to discover more information about dyslexia. The show has been conceived as dyslexia is still not understood by the wider population. The show will deliver awareness along with demonstrations and sharing best practice.
The Dyslexia Show is a free exhibition open to all and focuses on education, parents and carers and the workplace with registration open now at: www.dyslexiashow.co.uk.
Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham gives the show a national presence, with the venue’s central location making it accessible to more parents, carers and educational professionals that need support and guidance.
The Dyslexia Show will deliver a wide range of resources and services along with inspirational speakers and Continuing Professional Development.
We are delighted to announce that Dyslexia Box, Claro Software, Scanning Pens, SEN Books and the SEND Group are founding partners for this event.
Arran Smith Dyslexia Show Director and Founder said: “As a severely dyslexic adult working for 15 years within the dyslexia sector, I felt it was time to bring amazing speakers, products and services together in one place. This will be the first national experience of its kind in the UK, which will ultimately spread awareness of dyslexia and ensure that dyslexics can succeed. There are exciting times ahead!”
David Gallagher, Senior Business Development Manager at the NEC added: “It is a great pleasure to host the Dyslexia Show at the NEC for its debut. Our location teamed with great show content, is set to make this the go-to event for those living with and teaching those with dyslexia. We are proud to support this show and look forward to welcoming both the organisers and visitors in 2020.”
