Thank you for a wonderful conference!
2018 KEYNOTE SPEAKER: NADINE GAAB
Nadine Gaab is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital Boston/Harvard Medical School and a member of the faculty at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her current research within the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience at Children’s Hospital Boston focuses on auditory & language processing in the human brain and its applications for the development of typical and atypical language and literacy skills. The Gaablab is currently working on various topics such as possible pre-markers of developmental dyslexia, the underlying neural mechanism of comorbidity of developmental dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the neural correlates of language and reading development across the life-span.
Experience Dyslexia® Simulation, YES! Ambassadors, Topics on Executive Function, Promoting Mathematical Literacy, Morphology, Spelling, Phonology, and more!
“Dyslexia is a different brain organization that needs different teaching methods. It is never the fault of the child, but rather the responsibility of us who teach to find methods that work for that child.”
