Why have a conference?

Ongoing research is being undertaken on a national and international scale to learn more about dyslexia and to assist people in overcoming the handicapping consequences of this disability. While much has been achieved, there is still much more to be done!

The Canadian Dyslexia Association has a mandate to promote awareness of dyslexia and to develop and implement specialized methods to improve education and life opportunities for the estimated 5 million Canadians who have dyslexia. The conference brings together recognized experts in the field of dyslexia to share their knowledge for the benefit of people with dyslexia.
