For learners with Dyslexia or Literacy Difficulties, the use of technology can make managing school work, communicating with others, and learning independently much easier. The market is awash with devices, applications and programmes that claim to teach or compensate for the difficulties experienced by learners with reading disabilities. How does a parent, teacher, or child choose what might actually help them? This presentation by Dr Stephanie Gottwald will help separate the cool toys from the real tools that could unleash a learner’s success.

The clinical features of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and that of anxiety disorders in children are different, yet there are many symptoms that may overlap.  In fact, the one condition could mimic the other if a diagnosis is made without taking all the relevant information into consideration. Anxiety is the most common co-morbidity of ADHD in children, but it may also be the sole cause of the sudden onset of symptoms that appear to have ADHD-type characteristics.  In addition, anxiety complicates the management of children with ADHD who present with both. This presentation will focus on the clinical presentation and management of both conditions and highlight how each diagnosis could impair learning.

It is not always easy to love - your dyslexic adolescent - but you can guarantee that if you are feeling bad, your child will be feeling worse….  The transition from primary to high school is often a challenge but it is an inescapable irony that it should coincide with that tumult of change that heralds the start of adult life.  This talk will pinpoint the ways in which dyslexia and changing school demands can heap up the stress and how we, as parents, can help our children (and ourselves) to navigate these sometimes troubled waters.
