The third Bell House Dyslexia Fair will take place on Sunday 5 September 2021 and it’s still completely free to attend.
The fair brings together families, teachers and the wider dyslexia community to learn more about dyslexia, talk to experts, discover useful resources and share experiences and learnings.
A busy programme of talks spans the day featuring the Studying with Dyslexia blogger John Hicks; panel discussions with primary and secondary students and parents discussing their experiences and personal hacks, and Dr Susie Nyman on multi-sensory teaching strategies, amongst many other talks.
Local experienced primary school dyslexia specialist teacher Ruth Pierce and secondary school and FE dyslexia expert, Tina Hunter, will be running one to one advisory clinics. Ameerah Khan, Psychologist and Neurodiversity Coach, will be running group workshops on dyslexia awareness and the importance of emotional literacy.
Two relaxing group sessions of Chi Kung, an ancient form of gentle, meditative exercise, for children and young adults will be led by Katie Hudson in the garden.
An exhibition of local and national dyslexia resources and products will run throughout the day with professional advice and expert knowledge on hand. Activities to keep children entertained will take place outside, weather permitting. Refreshments will be available to keep everyone happy.
The full schedule will be published closer to the time.
Please pre-book your attendance so we can monitor numbers and remain Covid safe.
