World Dyslexia Forum

3 – 5 February 2010 at UNESCO Paris

This forum targets ministry of education teacher training decision-makers in over 190 countries.

It also brings together education authorities and experts in order to address the teaching of reading and writing, as well as the difficulties for learners who struggle with memory and organisation.

It will consider good practice for teacher training and establish a platform for a world-wide network of supportive forums.

Through different languages and cultures, it will also explore the approaches that work best for dyslexic learners to help them manage the challenges they confront.

The Forum will create a dynamic for change within education systems. It will address the UN’s literacy drive and ensure appropriate teaching to for those with different learning needs by bringing together three key players: education teacher training decision makers, academic researchers and local parent groups.

Free online and blended formats will be explored, including a pilot in Belgium (2008-2009) Dyslexia - Basics for teachers: Identification and What to do.
