Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain
7-9 June 2023
The fourth edition of iWORDD will offer the research community the opportunity to get a broad overview of the current theories underlying research in the field and of the methodological challenges faced, while helping outline future directions in the investigation of developmental dyslexia. Our aim with this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas between world-class dyslexia experts through talks and debates, and facilitate transfer of knowledge between practitioners and scientists. The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of dyslexia and improve detection protocols and remediation techniques. With its limited size, iWORDD will encourage interactions among invited speakers and researchers.
The first two days (June 7-8) will be dedicated to science and will be centred around three talks and a debate delivered by our keynote speakers, as well as around two invited symposiums. Since iWORDD aims to encompass a wide variety of theoretical views on developmental reading disorders, international experts will represent this diversity of approaches. Keynotes will be complemented by oral and poster presentations selected from abstract submissions.
Third day (From theory to Practice)
The aim of this third day (June 9th) is to promote the transfer of knowledge and interaction among researchers, parents, teachers and practitioners. \\\""iWORDD -- From Theory to Practice\\\"" is centered around keynote lectures delivered by international experts and tailored to a broad audience, followed by a round-table discussion. For this part of the workshop, simultaneous interpretation in Spanish, English and Basque will be provided.
Abstract submission deadline: 31 January 2023
