IWORDD2019 – Theoretical perspectives

IWORDD — Theoretical perspectives is the applied part of IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia, organized by the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (www.bcbl.eu).

Across two full days, the third edition of iWORDD will feature four excellent invited speakers whose theoretical views will cover various issues related to the impact of cross-linguistic variations on the manifestations of reading development and reading disorders. Questions linked to how structural differences amongst languages modulate reading acquisition and reading disorders will be addressed as well as important timely issues such as multilingualism and second language learning.

iWORDD will therefore offer the research community the opportunity to get a broad overview of the current cross-linguistic theories underlying research in the field, while helping outline future directions in the investigation of developmental dyslexia.

With it limited size, iWORDD will encourage interactions among invited speakers and researchers during the four keynote lectures, invited symposiums, oral as well as poster sessions.

Coupled with the aim of generating new ideas to advance our field from theoretical perspectives, the ultimate goal of iWORDD is to highlight innovative thinking which could play in important role in clinical practice and education. With this in mind, a day devoted to linking theory to practice which will be open to a broader audience will take place after the two days of scientific meeting between researchers.
