Leading companies such as OrCam, Clicker and Scanning Pens and will be showcasing a variety of handheld devices, software and gadgets giving visitors a hands on experience of dyslexia tools. The team of specialist tutors and assessors from Dyslexia Sparks will be on hand to give advice and guidance to anyone who has dyslexia and would like any further information regarding specialist tuition and assessments.

Amy Appleton, Specialist Teacher and Assessor at Dyslexia Sparks and the charity’s Assistive Technology Lead, said:

“We want to host this event to give back and support families we work with and also reach other children with dyslexia. This unique experience will allow each individual to test a wide variety of assistive tech products all in one session to find the right solution for them – and it’s free to attend. It’s important to us that these are accessible for everyone, bringing the tech companies to the people that need them.”

In addition to the interactive exhibits, visitors to the Assistive Tech Festival will have the chance to win some of the gadgets being showcased. The C-Pen Reader 2 Scanning Pen is the next generation exam support, designed to help users to overcome reading barriers and focus on achieving their academic goals.
