CESD Schoolhouse logo

The focus of CESD’s 19th Annual Fall Dyslexia Conference will be on the unique dynamics and concerns raised by the pandemic.
The Virtual Dyslexia Conference will give attendees access to all the recorded sessions (rather than having to pick and choose), enabling the attendee to watch as many sessions as you’d like, as many times as you’d like during a three-week conference window that begins on the first day of the conference. Attendees can access conference sessions from their Mac/PC, tablet or smartphone.
