2016 Dimensions of Dyslexia Conference


Many thanks to our attendees and sponsors of IDA Georgia’s 2016 Dimensions of Dyslexia Conference held February 20, 2016 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

This one-day dyslexia conference included a wide-range of topics including research, assistive technology, vocabulary, working memory and literacy. We would also like to thank our inspiring keynote speakers Travis Allen and David Flink.

Allen is president and founder of the iSchool Initiative and winner of the 2015 Georgia Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. He is quickly becoming one of the more influential leaders of the emerging digital learning movement.

Flink, who is dyslexic, is the founder of Eye to Eye, a national mentoring program for different thinkers designed to show kids with learning differences and/or ADHD how to be their best advocates, embrace and capitalize on their unique ways of looking at the world.
