Technology, Learning and Self-Esteem in Dyslexic Students


The link between learning, technology and building self-esteem in dyslexic students.

John Hicks will explore how technology can be used to empower a dyslexic learner to not only improve learning and attainment but also build their self-esteem.

John will give an overview of the types of assistive technology that are currently making a difference to dyslexic students across the UK.

John is a parenting and neurodiversity coach, working with families who are experiencing dyslexia, and with young people who struggle to engage with education. Seeing the struggles that his daughters had at school, as well as his own, many years before, fuel his passion to support others.

Tickets cost £10. Bursary places are available - please email [email protected] for more information.

He also writes frequently about the challenges of having dyslexia whilst in education, and strategies for not letting those challenges get in the way. John can be found on Twitter with @DyslexiaBlogger or at
