Bringing experience, enthusiasm and eager to engage!

Following the retirement of Dr Kate Saunders, Helen Boden is now the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).

Helen is entering the role with a great awareness and vast experience, having worked in the field of dyslexia for over 25 years, most recently as Head of Training, Assessments & Conferences at the BDA.

A Qualified Specialist Teacher, Helen’s work has included carrying out research on behalf of the BDA with Young Offenders and long term unemployed. In her most recent role, she wrote and developed a wide range of training programmes that are delivered across both the educational and employment sectors and oversaw the dyslexia assessment and conference services offered by the BDA. 

Helen’s enthusiasm will be known to many and she sees her new role as a great opportunity to engage and build relationships to continue to build on the great work of the BDA and partner organisations.

Helen’s first major event in her new role as CEO will be the prestigious BDA International Conference, 12-14th April, Telford.

Helen said, “Having been fortunate enough to attend a number of BDA conferences I am always struck by how privileged we are to be able to bring together so many leading experts from the various fields. To all of our speakers and delegates, I would like to say thank you, not only for joining us at the conference, but for your tireless efforts to increase understanding and knowledge around dyslexia and neurodiversity.”
