Arithmetical Disorders in Dyslexia  (Flyer)
By Brian Butterworth, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Psychology, University College London
What: Many children, perhaps as many as 15% of the age group have trouble learning to read. And perhaps, 40% of these are also bad at learning Maths. Does poor reading – Dyslexia, cause poor arithmetic – Dyscalculia? Here Dr. Butterworth will review the latest evidence about the “reading brain” and the “arithmetic brain” and ask how the two might be related. Are Dyslexia and Dyscalculia due to similar abnormalities in brain structure or functions? What about the role of genetics? Is there a common genetic basis for the two conditions? Interventions for Dyslexia are now well established. Can they work on Dyscalculia as well?

Where: Webster Uni, LLC Hall, Commons Rm, Rte de Collex 9, 1293 Bellevue – GENEVA
