SAR1 - The Neurobiology of Contributing Factors to Learning Difficulties in Children with Dyslexia


Nov 9, 2019 9:45am ‐ Nov 9, 2019 12:45pm

Standard: $20.00

Description

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.

Maria Luisa Gorno-Tempini, Virginia Sturm, Christa Watson, and Claudia Koochek have no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose.
