Learning difficulties and educational opportunities: Making use of individual differences
To make optimal use of the capacities of all pupils, education must respond to individual differences between pupils and specific learning problems (Specific Learning Disorders, DSM V) must be dealt with in an early stage. This session discusses studies focusing on individual differences in language and arithmetic learning, and the role of heredity (parents) and school.
