The Learning Difference Convention - Jillian Zocher, Director The Learning Difference Convention is an annual conference in Sydney and Melbourne, linking delegates to support networks, teacher training, resources, research, authors and information, all relating to learning differences. Neurological differences are to be recognised and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labelled with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others. The Learning Difference Convention recognises that a systematic, explicit and multi-sensory approach to reading is essential and that early intervention is key. Whilst we provide FREE resources to assist with reading, we recognise that dyslexia is more than just a reading difficulty and that dyslexics have varying needs, relative to their individual strengths and weaknesses. This unique event allows us to share the plethora of information, whether it be reading, writing, spelling, co-ordination, concentration, auditory processing, mathematics, study skills, organisational skills, self-esteem difficulties, anxiety, social skills, behaviour, technology, visual processing, nutrition and more. The event allows you to ask the necessary questions, meet the experts and support groups and try out loads of resources.

Our mobile and web apps and the advanced software platform that supports them, empower individuals and carers to manage all aspects of prescription medication use. Our apps are intuitive and easy-to-use, with a user experience (UX) that simplifies the complex job of managing multiple medications, potentially for multiple family members. Behind-the-scenes our cloud-based medication records and data connections to pharmacies and other HCPs are extremely advanced, with automation that reduces the need for manual configuration by pharmacists or individuals.
Did you know a hidden side effect of many prescription drugs is loss of essential nutrients like B12, iron, magnesium, probiotics and zinc? Some of the biggest culprits are common, daily medications! This drug-driven malnourishment can lead to further health issues down the road, including anemia, compromised immunity, digestive issues and heart disease. Which is why it pays to stay on top of your nutrient levels when taking medication with Mytavin. Type in your medication into the Mytavin website and hit “calculate” to uncover hidden nutrient deficiencies post-medication. From there, you may choose to take that information to the next level by testing your specific nutrient levels, or start a custom supplement regime to protect against losses.
