Neurodevelopmental Disorders Seminar Series
In partnership with the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Annual Seminar, a workshop addressing the challenges of research with neurodevelopmental disorders was held at University College London on 24th June, 2016 (see programme).
The fourth meeting in the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Annual Seminar was held at Institute of Education, University College London on 23rd June, 2016 (see programme). We heard fantastic keynotes from Prof Elisabeth Hill (@ElisabethLHill) and Dr Megan Freeth (@MeganFreeth) entitled “Moving on up: the importance of the motor system in studying atypical development across the lifespan” and “Putting the ‘social’ into our understanding of autistic social cognition”
In partnership with the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Seminar Series, a longitudinal data analysis workshop was held at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford on 23rd June, 2015. We learned MPlus analysis hands-on from Dr Rachael Bedford (@), with particular attention to problems arising due to longitudinal analysis with children and special populations.
The third meeting in the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Seminar Series was held at St Catherine’s College, Oxford on 22nd June, 2015 (see programme). We heard fantastic keynotes from Prof Dorothy Bishop (@) and Dr Rachael Bedford (@) entitled “How and why does an additional sex chromosome affect neurodevelopment?” and “Modeling multiple risks and multiple outcomes: Are there autism-specific trajectories of atypical social and attentional development?”
Making Links events are organised by the Oxford Centre for Developmental Science to encourage collaboration between developmental researchers and local schools. Our research would not be possible without participating schools. The goal of the event is to share recent research findings and discuss possible impact for education.
The most recent one was held February 26th, 2016 (see programme). We heard Charles Hulme, who stepped in for Maggie Snowling, talk about ‘Foundations for Learning’ and their early literacy intervention work. We also had breakout discussion groups made up of researchers and educators on: 1) Cross-cultural perspectives on early years education, 2) Word learning challenges and strategies, and 3) The impact of bullying on student mental health and education.
