The progress achieved in the knowledge of learning disabilities, mostly due to the contribution of neurosciences, together with the recent advances in the field of digital technology, is leading to a reassessment of teaching and learning practices, especially those related to reading, writing and mathematical abilities. In this perspective, supporting dialogue and exchange between education specialists, practitioners and researchers is becoming particularly important to foster new teaching and learning practices, based on the most recent scientific evidence. This conference has the goal of connecting research and practice stakeholders in the field of learning disabilities. It will host applied researchers from different Swiss and international institutions, teachers, school psychologists, speech therapists (and other specialized therapists) and educators. The conference welcomes proposals on the following topics: analysis and understanding of Learning Disabilities (LD); learning disabilities in schools and within the society; Specific Learning Disabilities and prevention at school; teaching and learning strategies and Specific learning disabilities; teamwork between families, schools and regional medical services; digital technologies (ICT) and their use in teaching and learning practices with LD pupils; teaching and learning approaches for reading and writing and their relation to specific learning disabilities.The conference will host proposals relating to two different areas of interest: - Research: theoretical and practical implications of research findings in the field of learning disabilities- Professional practice: fieldwork accounts, case studies, action-research, and good practices in teaching and learning.
