The Dyscalculia Show 2024- Karen Go Soco


Dyscalculia Show 2024

It was with some trepidation that I got on the train to the NEC. I’d never been there before and had no real idea of what to expect at the Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Show and added to that was the fact that I would also be speaking at the event! I needn’t have worried though because from the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and at ease. It was fantastic to finally meet in person the wonderful people who work so hard to raise awareness through the Dyscalculia Network: Cat, Rob, Peter and Emily. It was also great to meet the other tutors and assessors that I had also only ever seen online, as well as meeting Arran who was responsible for establishing the Dyslexia Show. I learnt so much from the talks I attended and wished I’d signed up for more! When not in a talk on that first day, I spent time wandering around the stands, meeting people I’d encountered online as well as new faces, receiving a few freebies and stocking up on some new resources. There was so much to see and so many people to talk to – by closing time I was ready for a rest.

I was really happy to be there for the Saturday morning too. I spent most of my time on the Dyscalculia Network stand, chatting to parents, teachers, tutors and children who came to explore the resources and find out more about dyscalculia. It was fantastic to be surrounded by people who all wanted to talk about dyscalculia and maths and I learnt so much from everyone I spoke too, as well as hopefully passing on some useful ideas and information. I was very sad to leave for my train back home, but I know I’ll be back and walking on that purple carpet again next year! If you missed it this year or weren’t sure about going, I wholeheartedly recommend putting it on your calendar for next year… just make sure you have some comfy shoes ready!
