Thank you to everyone who came on Saturday to our AGM and London Conference. Over 100 delegates came to central London at our generous hosts Norton Rose Fulbright to spend a day with our expert speakers and each other!
New Adult Representative – We are excited to announce that your new adult representative, as voted by members of the Dyspraxia Foundation, was announced to be Alice Hewson. We will share a welcome message and details on how to contact her in the coming week!
Talking Adults, we officially launched our yearly focus at our Conference looking at Adults & Higher Education. We are running a survey which is open to anyone who is 18+ about adult diagnosis. Please complete this survey is you can and share far and wide! Details available here
The Dyspraxia Foundation board elected will remain the same as last year, which will be lead by chair Sophie Kayani.
The day was feature packed with talks in the main hall, and small workshops again looking at issues aimed at adults and youth! The day ended with a story from former adult representative Mark Robinson about his recent struggles with mental health and how it’s very important to give yourself time and space in this busy, demanding and frustrating world.
For anyone who missed out, we are running not one, but two, events for both Youth and Adults in Birmingham in October. The Youth event aimed at up-to 25 year olds, and an adult event at those 18+. The youth event takes place on Saturday 12th October and the adult event on Saturday 26th October in the centre of Birmingham. We will be announcing details on both these events in the near future and opening bookings
Thank you to everyone who came, we hope you enjoyed your day and surroundings, and we look forward to welcoming you to our future events, or even our London Conference in 2020!
