EdRev Expo 2019 Spotlight Session: The Neuroscience of Dyslexia [presentation] [video]
In this spotlight session from EdRev Expo 2019, learn about the latest neuroscience regarding dyslexia, including everyday questions and practical answers.
Fumiko Hoeft, MD, PhD, addresses important questions, such as:
- Is dyslexia neurobiological? What’s the impact of different writing systems, or identification criteria (even in cases with “normal” decoding but discrepantly lower than other cognitive abilities)?
- 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?
