UNITE SpLD 2020
Wed Jun 24 @ 9:00 am - Thu Jun 25 @ 1:30 pm$75
Every child learns differently and for children with Specific Learning Differences (SpLD) and special educational needs, their learning challenges are often multi-faceted. This makes working with these children a complex task for teachers, parents or field practitioners.
Expert help is at hand, at the Uniting Ideas in Teaching Excellence: Specific Learning Differences (UNITE SpLD) conference organised by the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS).
UNITE SpLD is a unique conference that showcases research covering aspects of behaviour, identification, early intervention, technology, multilingualism, assessment and much more for children and adults with special learning needs.
Back for the sixth year and delivered online for the first time, UNITE SPLD 2020 will allow participants from all over the world to participate from the comfort of their homes. The online format also means participants can interact directly with researchers who are making key differences with their work internationally.
This year’s conference features a strong line-up of internationally-renowned experts as keynote speakers:
· Fintan O’Regan: The Curious Case of ADHD
· Dr Malatesha Joshi: Componential Model of Reading: Implications for the Assessment of Instruction of Dyslexia and Related Reading Problems
· Dr Julie Washington: Addressing the Literacy Needs of Children who Speak Non-mainstream Dialects

· Edmen Leong: A Literature Review of Empirical Studies on Reading Motivation and Struggling Readers

In all, the conference will feature 36 speakers and 29 presentations covering these six themes: advocacy, assessment for learning, differentiation and adaptation, edutech, school leadership and policies and teacher support.
