The Dyslexia Show is set to take place on 20-21 March 2020 at the NEC.
With an estimated 10 per cent 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 an opportunity for visitors 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.
Arran Smith, 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!”
The Dyslexia Show is a free exhibition and focuses on education, parents and carers and the workplace. The event will deliver a range of resources and services along with inspirational speakers and CPD-accredited sessions.
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.”
