Attend the 2nd annual The Dyslexic Edge: Pathways to STEM Excellence Conference is where we begin to change the conversation about dyslexia education. This conference, brought to you through a collaborative effort of the following organizations: George Mason University College of Sciences, Sliding Doors STEM & Dyslexia Learning Center, and Decoding Dyslexia Virginia, is intended for:

● Educators ● Industry professionals ● Parents ● Students from kindergarten to the university level

We will present a myriad of speakers, workshops, and panels all designed on how to best educate children with dyslexia so they ALL reach their full potential. Topics include: ● The science of dyslexia ● The STEM Dyslexia connection ● Best teaching practices in reading and in STEM fields ● Identifying dyslexia ● Assistive technology ● Evaluating for dyslexia ● Inspiring speakers with dyslexia ● And more!

The vision for the day includes a morning conference of sessions and speakers paired with an afternoon of STEM celebrations. During our STEM Celebrations called STEM-A-Palooza, children of all ages will get to participate in a variety of STEM activities, engineering challenges, and live demos. More information
