Call for paper

"Bridging the Gap between Research, Policies and Practice - Opportunities and challenges with accessibility*"

The European Dyslexia Association, in cooperation with Linnaeus University, is happy to announce European Dyslexia Autumn Seminars in Växjö, Sweden from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th of September  2019. 
Conference language will be English. 

About the theme

*Accessibility is a wide and complex concept that presents both challenges as well as possibilities, at individual and structural levels. We need to know more about individual differences and needs, and how to respond to and accommodate these to enable accessibility.  At a systems level, policies, methods and regulations create a complicated map for developers, practitioners and users. How do we navigate this map and move forward, in a principled, evidence-based fashion, to create the best possible life-long opportunities for people with dyslexia and related difficulties?

You are invited to submit
