Numeracy study

Are you interested in how your child understand numbers? Do you have someone in your family with reading and/or mathematical difficulties? We are looking for children ages 4-5 to participate in our Numeracy Study! For more information, please contact us!

We are assessing early numerical and linguistic skills using game-like tasks in the area of language and numbers. There is one two-hour study visit involving tests that measure language comprehension, vocabulary, print knowledge, memory, numerical skills, and early arithmetical skills.

Uncovering the early behavioral markers of arithmetical difficulties in Developmental Dyslexia and Developmental Dyscalculia prior to formal education will contribute to understanding the root causes of arithmetical difficulties in these disorders. This will further contribute to the development of effective diagnostic and intervention tools, as well as preventive strategies at crucial stages for successful math development.
