Processing Speed: What You Need to Know by Kate Kelly @UnderstoodOrg @lawrenceschool

Processing Speed: What You Need to Know by Kate Kelly @UnderstoodOrg @lawrenceschool | learning disability | Scoop.it
Slow processing speed isn’t a learning or attention issue on its own. But it can contribute to learning and attention issues like ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia and auditory processing disorder.

Dr. Gwenevere Eden is not only an internationally recognized neurological research leader, she is the Past President of the International Dyslexia Association. For our sisters and daughters--let's pay attention people!--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...Because dyslexia is two to three times more prevalent in males compared with females, "females have been overlooked," says senior author Guinevere Eden, PhD, director for the Center for the Study of Learning and past-president of the International Dyslexia Association.

"It has been assumed that results of studies conducted in men are generalizable to both sexes. But our research suggests that researchers need to tackle dyslexia in each sex separately to address questions about its origin and potentially, treatment," Eden says..."
