International Conference

Because all of us learn differently

Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and ADHD

Auditori de Sant Cugat, Barcelona June 26th, 2017

2017 International Conference had a double message. During the morning we talked about RtI (Response to Intervention), an intervention model from the USA and Canada that is already being implemented in the educational system of the Canary Islands (Spain). Experiences from different cultures and real case studies were shared. In the afternoon, we delved into the world of emotions applied during the learning process, specifically covering the areas of neuroscience, emotional intelligence and new challenges of education.

The event was held entirely in Spanish.

Thank you!
