“We were honoured to have Gavin Reid’s wealth of knowledge and experience at our Learning Difference Convention in Sydney this year. Gavin added a particularly unique collection of expertise to our event – as a parent, teacher, psychologist, researcher and author.  His talks were not only informative, they were inspirational, and delivered as a perfect example of how we need to adapt our teaching to enhance learning and bring happiness into schools. We look forward to welcoming him again soon as we are all hungry for more”.
