The Neuropsychology of Mathematics with Steven Feifer (Hybrid) - 30551

This workshop will explore how young children learn and acquire basic mathematical skills from a brain-based educational perspective. The role of language, working memory, visual-spatial reasoning, and executive functioning will be featured as primary cognitive constructs involved in the acquisition of basic number skills. There will be a discussion on three primary ways in which numbers are formatted in the brain as well as critical neurodevelopmental pathways that contribute to skills such as automatic fact retrieval, quantitative reasoning, and the development of number sense. Specific case studies featuring the Feifer Assessment of Mathematics (FAM) will be shared, along with scores of interventions. The expected learner outcomes will be to better understand three prominent subtypes of math disabilities in children, learn critical assessment techniques to tease out each subtype, explore the role of anxiety and math, and to introduce more efficient ways to diagnose and remediate math disorders in children.
