Scanning Pens sponsor BDA Helpline to provide specialist teacher support and extended operating hours

Thursday 6 June 2019

The British Dyslexia Association is delighted to announce that a new sponsorship from Scanning Pens will mean the BDA Helpline will now have even more direct support from a dyslexia specialist.

The British Dyslexia Association helpline currently receives thousands of enquiries a year asking for advice on everything ranging from book recommends to workplace issues. It is currently staffed by our excellent helpline manager and a team of first-class volunteers.

The Scanning Pens sponsorship will allow us to increase the capacity and expertise of the BDA Helpline further – meaning faster and more straightforward support is available and opening hours extended. We strive to quickly deliver support to the 1 in 10 people in Britain with dyslexia.

The British Dyslexia Association would like to say thank you to Scanning Pens for their kind support. It will make a massive difference to the people that need our help.

Scanning Pens is one of the largest suppliers of mobile scanners in the world, representing the leading manufacturers of this type of technology. They are the exclusive suppliers of all C-Pen Education products, including the C-Pen ReaderPen, C-Pen ExamReader and C-Pen DictionaryPen.

Founded over 15 years ago, Scanning Pens aims to deliver well designed technology to support individual learning. As a company they’re on a mission to break down barriers for dyslexic people, particularly around access to print based exams. In 2014 the UK exam boards allowed the use of reading pens in exams for everyone & anyone who needs extra help reading exam questions. No access arrangements required. Other exam boards internationally are now allowing the use of pen scanners in exams.

Scanning Pens has 65 employees and offices in the U.K., U.S., Australia, Canada & India.

Scanning Pens are proud to sponsor the BDA Helpline.
