In this lecture, Dr. Fumiko Hoeft will share her lab’s journey over the past 20 years since she started her work on the neural basis of reading, dyslexia, and learning differences. She will walk the audience through intergenerational transmission of literacy and dyslexia-related brain networks. She will take a whole-child approach through neurobiological lens with the goal of helping children reach their full potential. She will also touch upon other areas of work, such as multilingualism, strengths-based approach, compensation, factors that promote resilience, socio-emotional challenges and strengths that children with learning differences might experience, stigma and its impact on children's self-esteem.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge from a leading researcher in the field of the neurobiology of dyslexia and its socio-emotional outcomes. Dr.Hoeft's expertise and experience make this event a must-attend for anyone interested in learning more about dyslexia and its impact on education and society.
