IWORDD - International Workshop on Reading and Developmental Dyslexia

As part of its scientific activities, the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language ( with the UPV-EHU are pleased to announce the second edition of IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia. Our aim with this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas between world-class dyslexia experts through talks and round tables, and facilitate transfer of knowledge between practitioners and scientists.
The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of dyslexia and improve detection protocols and remediation techniques.
IWORDD will take place from Thursday May 5th to Saturday May 7th 2016 in Bilbao, Spain.

The workshop is split into two parts, each of which should be registered for separately.
