The Brain Science of Learning Differences
May 14, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Learn about the latest neuroscience regarding dyslexia, including every day questions and practical answers. Many important questions will be addressed, including the latest thinking on dyslexia and the brain, the role of resilience, and whether or not the brain changes with interventions. Presented by Fumiko Hoeft, MD, PhD, Director of Brain Imaging Research Center, Professor of Univ of Connecticut Psychological Sciences, UCSF Dyslexia Center, Yale Child Study Center and Senior Scientist at Haskins Labs
Dr. Hoeft will address important questions, such as: Is dyslexia neurobiological? Can we identify dyslexia before waiting for our children to fail? What are the early signs? Are there neurobiological signatures? Are the struggles only in phonological processing? Are there individual differences? What’s the latest thinking of the neuroscience of dyslexia? How can we promote success in those with dyslexia? What is the role of resilience & compensation? Does the brain change with interventions? Are some neural systems more malleable than others?
Attend this special session with Dr. Hoeft to learn more about the brain science of dyslexia.
