Mazzocco presented at first conference on developmental dyscalculia

Michele MazzoccoMichele Mazzocco, professor in Institute of Child Development and research director of the Center for Early Education and Development, presented at the first Cambridge Conference on Developmental Dyscalculia, held September 13-14 at St. John's College, University of Cambridge, England.

St. John's Centre for Neuroscience in Education, Department of Psychology, sponsored the conference and invited a small group of scientists who study developmental dyscalculia (DD) to discuss the etiology of DD, its trajectory and possible interventions. DD refers to persistent mathematical learning difficulties of childhood related to difficulty processing numbers, and which occur despite adequate learning opportunities (and are not simply the outcome of poor or absent instruction).
