Dyscalculia – Part IV: Heritability and the effects of brain damage on numerical abilities
If identical twins are found to be sufficiently more concordant than fraternal twins, then there is a significant contribution of genetic factors.
Dyscalculia – Part III: The Arithmetic Network
“While the functioning of the grey matter and white matter is essential for a successful arithmetical connection to be made, the dyscalculic brain shows anomalies of structure and activation in the parietal lobes.”
Dyscalculia – Part 2: Core deficit of the Number Module
“The number module refers to our innate ability of processing numerical information. When there is a core deficit in the number module, individuals develop dyscalculic traits.”
The function of Working Memory
Do “87 x 6” in your head. Most people would probably get the multiplication of 7 and 6 and at the same time store the number “4” on one side to later add it with the multiplication of 8 and 6.
Sensory memory refers to the temporary storage of information based on the stimuli we receive via our senses. In other words, they are what we remember after seeing or hearing something.
Introduction to Memory
We often interchangeably use the two concepts: memory and learning. The two concepts are intimately intertwined, but they are of fundamental difference.
Acquiring a Language through Body Movements and Story-telling
Acquiring a language involves the entire process of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and its purpose is to communicate with the other person in a seamless manner.
“Learning Disabilities” from the Perspective of Language Acquisition
Children who have difficulty with visual processing face problems with visual discrimination, visual memory, or visual closure of letters and words.
Special Lecture on “Bilingual Children” by Dr. Cho
“What can be called bilingual does not depend on whether you can speak both languages perfectly, but on whether you can communicate with others in both languages in daily life.”
Learn to multiply and divide through Visualization
The “Active Learners” at our Active Learning Center learn the mathematical concepts and principles to do multiplication and division through visualization strategy.
Working Memory Training Case Study
We would like to introduce a successful case of a child who has been a long-term participant of the “Working Memory Training, WMT” program offered at the Tree Group’s Active Learning Center.
