Dyslexia and You Event

Dyslexia & You


With less than a month until this workshop takes place in Torquay, on the 5th October. 


Book now for this unique workshop for parents of dyslexic children, delivered by parents of dyslexic children.

Topics include:

·      Addressing poor self-esteem

·      Ways to support a dyslexic child at home

·      Use of assistive technology

·      Working with your child's school

The two main speakers for 'Dyslexia and You' are John Hicks and Liz Loly.


Liz Loly is a qualified teacher and parent to a delightfully dyslexic son. With a background in communications, which began when working on the London 2012 Olympic bid, Liz now works as a Communications and Education Consultant advising on dyslexia and other areas.

Liz is personally and professionally dedicated to (some may say, obsessed with) sharing knowledge of dyslexia, and enabling everyone the opportunity and strategies to reach their own full potential.


John Hicks, ‘Dyslexia Blogger’ is a parent, an assistive technology advocate and works with neurodiverse clients to help develop their self-esteem, confidence, and motivation.

John knows that children with dyslexia can be helped to reach their potential if parents and teachers of those children can be inspired and informed about the strengths and weaknesses that come from having dyslexia.


In addition to the talks, you will have a chance to see and use dyslexia-related resources and tools courtesy of event sponsors and exhibitors; meet other parents and enjoy a hot lunch in a beautiful setting.

The cost of the event has been subsidised thanks to 'Dyslexia and You' event sponsors St David's CollegetrugsTouch-Type Read and Spell and Scanning Pens.
