Typical and Atypical Development of Numerical and Mathematical Skills
Dr. Daniel Ansari

We are pleased to welcome back our presenter, Dr. Daniel Ansari, who was last with us in November 2016. Dr. Ansari is a Full Professor & Canada Research Chair in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology and the Brain and Mind Institute at the University of Western Ontario in Canada.

Dr. Ansari heads the Numerical Cognition Laboratory (www.numericalcognition.org). He and his team explore the developmental trajectory underlying both the typical and atypical (Developmental Dyscalculia) development of numerical and mathematical skills, using both behavioral and neuroimaging methods.

This session will provide a detailed overview of what is known from psychological and neuroscience evidence about children's learning of fundamental numerical and mathematical skills from infancy onwards. Evidence from both behavioural and brain-imaging research will be presented, and educational implications of the research findings will be discussed throughout the session. The session will also consider what we know about Developmental Dyscalculia (a specific learning difficulty in the domain of mathematics). Moreover, research on Mathematics Anxiety will also be presented. In this context, the implications for diagnosis and remediation will be considered.

This workshop will also be available via webinar. More details to follow on BCASP.ca.
