This symposium concentrates on translating knowledge from neuroscience into educational practices. The first section looks at dyslexia from a behavioral neurology perspective. Then two abilities that are generally not evaluated in dyslexia and yet appear to be unique in children with dyslexia are highlighted: emotional reactivity and risk/reward decision-making. The symposium concludes with a discussion of how phenotyping of dyslexia can inform selection and development of interventions.
