This first national exhibition in the UK specifically focussed on dyslexia is to take place next year. An estimated 10% of the UK population (around 6.3 million) have some form of the learning difficulty.
The show will provide awareness along with demonstrations and sharing best practice. It is a free exhibition open to all and focuses on education, parent, carers and the workplace.
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."
It will offer attendees a wide range of resources and services along with inspirational speakers and contribute to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
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."
Dyslexia Box, Claro Software, Scanning Pens, SEN Books and the SEND Group are founding partners for this event.
