The International Conference has always explored Maths and Dyscalculia as a key topic area throughout the years. IC:2018 is no different!
Professor Daniel Ansari will join us this time around as a keynote. His session: Building blocks of mathematical competence: evidence from brain & behaviour, will present his latest research in this fascinating subject area.
We are also pleased to announce that Professor Ansari will be awarded the Marion Welchman Award whilst he is with us. Marion Welchman was the founder of the BDA and instigated the first International Conference, so it is appropriate that this award is presented at the International Conference. Previous recipients have included: Maggie Snowling, Ingvar Lundberg, Elaine and Tim Miles, Dina Ocampo, Michael Davies and Charles Hulme.
The Trustees, Marion’s daughters, granddaughter and Steve Chinn are therefore pleased to announce that the recipient for the 2018 Award is Daniel Ansari.
Professor Steve Chinn will also present a webinar on 22nd March, linked to the IC and exploring issues around Dyslexia, Maths and Dyscalculia. Professor Chinn has been IC Chairperson and is of course an expert in the field – we do hope you will be able to join us for this informative session. Find out more!
Professor Chinn and Judy Hornigold will also present a Masterclass during the IC. This will be a morning session exploring key areas of Maths and Dyscalculia, on Thursday morning of the International Conference. We will share more information as soon as we have it!
