Our approach to the emerging global reality…
Considering the current local/global pace of change and recognizing that there are increasingly fewer secure jobs, businesses, and/or markets, we believe that the best way to prepare one and all for the future is to enhance and accelerate the way we think, learn, understand and express what we know and what we want to say so that we are effectively prepared for the future, regardless of its permutations.

Common childhood neurodevelopmental disorders are associated with increased risk of psychotic experiences in early adolescence
(Wed 22 of Apr., 2015)
ABSTRACT FROM: Khandaker G, Stochl J, Zammit S, et al. A population-based longitudinal study of childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, IQ and subsequent risk of psychotic experiences in adolescence. Psychol Med 2014;44:3229–38. What is already known on this topic The disturbance of normal brain development, dating from the prenatal or perinatal period, is a key tenet of the neurodevelopmental hypothesis of schizophrenia.1 Similarities exist between schizophrenia and certain neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) of childhood, such as autism and intellectual disability, which both increase the risk of psychotic outcomes.2–4 However, it is unknown whether there is any relationship between schizophrenia and many other NDDs, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia, leaving it unc...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.

Early language and executive skills predict variations in number and arithmetic skills in children at family-risk of dyslexia and typically developing controls
(Tue 21 of Apr., 2015)
Publication date: August 2015 Source:Learning and Instruction, Volume 38 Author(s): Kristina Moll , Margaret J. Snowling , Silke M. Göbel , Charles Hulme Two important foundations for learning are language and executive skills. Data from a longitudinal study tracking the development of 93 children at family-risk of dyslexia and 76 controls was used to investigate the influence of these skills on the development of arithmetic. A two-group longitudinal path model assessed the relationships between language and executive skills at 3–4 years, verbal number skills (counting and number knowledge) and phonological processing skills at 4–5 years, and written arithmetic in primary school. The same cognitive processes accounted for variability in arithmetic skills in both groups. Early langua...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.

Differential diagnosis of dysgraphia, dyslexia, and OWL LD: behavioral and neuroimaging evidence
(Mon 20 of Apr., 2015)
Abstract In Study 1, children in grades 4–9 (N = 88, 29 females and 59 males) with persisting reading and/or writing disabilities, despite considerable prior specialized instruction in and out of school, were given an evidence-based comprehensive assessment battery at the university while parents completed questionnaires regarding past and current history of language learning and other difficulties. Profiles (patterns) of normed measures for different levels of oral and written language used to categorize participants into diagnostic groups for dysgraphia (impaired subword handwriting) (n = 26), dyslexia (impaired word spelling and reading) (n = 38), or oral and written language learning disability OWL LD (impaired oral and written syntax comprehension and expres...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.
