Keynote addresses by renowned experts and interactive breakout sessions will highlight the 18th Annual DuBard Symposium: “Dyslexia and Related Disorders” set for Sept. 17-18 at the Thad Cochran Center on The University of Southern Mississippi’s Hattiesburg campus.
Each year, educators, administrators, speech-language pathologists, dyslexia therapists, psychologists, social workers and parents from across the Southeast gather for the DuBard Symposium to gain information, review products and services, and network with peers. All of these factors combined make the DuBard Symposium a key element in assisting them in supporting and serving children with dyslexia and related disorders.
The two keynote speakers, Dr. Louisa C. Moats and Dr. Christopher Kaufman, have made major strides in understanding and educating others on the topics of dyslexia and related disorders.
