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.

  • ID 117 – Effective connectivity differences between control and dyslectic children based on DBN modeling    (Thu 11 of Feb., 2016)
    Effective connectivity differences between control and dyslexic children are explored by a modeling approach. Dynamic Bayesian networks (DBN) are used to model dynamic, nonlinear, non-stationary and probabilistic nature of the human brain connectivity.

  • Providing English foreign language teachers with content knowledge to facilitate decoding and spelling acquisition: a longitudinal perspective.    (Sun 07 of Feb., 2016)
    Authors: Kahn-Horwitz J Abstract This quasi-experimental study adds to the small existing literature on orthographic-related teacher knowledge in an English as a foreign language (EFL) context. The study examined the impact of a course on English orthography on predominantly non-native-speaking EFL preservice and inservice teachers' orthographic content knowledge, and the extent to which these teachers retained orthographic-related content knowledge four months after participating in a semester course on the topic. In addition, the study examined the relationship between participants' acquired orthographic-related content knowledge and EFL spelling. Both groups of teachers that studied in the course improved on overall orthographic-related content knowledge, both immediately follow...
  • The involvement of long-term serial-order memory in reading development: A longitudinal study    (Thu 04 of Feb., 2016)
    Publication date: May 2016 Source:Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Volume 145 Author(s): Louisa Bogaerts, Arnaud Szmalec, Marjolijn De Maeyer, Mike P.A. Page, Wouter Duyck Recent findings suggest that Hebb repetition learning—a paradigmatic example of long-term serial-order learning—is impaired in adults with dyslexia. The current study further investigated the link between serial-order learning and reading using a longitudinal developmental design. With this aim, verbal and visual Hebb repetition learning performance and reading skills were assessed in 96 Dutch-speaking children who we followed from first through second grade of primary school. We observed a positive association between order learning capacities and reading ability as well as weaker Hebb learning perfo...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.

  • Effectiveness of a group-based program for parents of children with dyslexia    (Mon 01 of Feb., 2016)
    Abstract Parents of children with dyslexia experience more parenting stress and depressive symptoms than other parents. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a cognitive-behavioral group-based program for parents of dyslexic children on parenting stress levels, parent–child homework interactions and parental competencies. 39 children with dyslexia and their mothers were randomly assigned either to a cognitive-behavioral-therapy group or a waiting-list control group. The intervention lasted for 3 months. Mothers filled in the Parenting Stress Index and a paper–pencil questionnaire assessing dyslexia specific stress, conflicts in homework situations and competencies in dealing with dyslexia. Assessment took place before, immediately after, and 3 months follo...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.
