    The Latest Research and Practical Strategies for the Development of Language and Cognitive Skills Required for Learning Mathematics

    Presented by Karen Tzanetopoulos, MS, CCC-SLP

    Saturday, January 12, 2019

    8:30 AM - 1 PM

    McCracken Middle School

    8000 East Prairie Road

    Skokie, IL  60076

    This seminar will cover highlights of the most recent research on math development in the brain, with a focus on abstract math concepts and cognitive skills.  Practical learning strategies and classroom implications will be covered beginning as early as preschool, since many children with learning disabilities start kindergarten with holes in their math readiness skills, and will progress through later elementary mathematics.                            

    Karen Tzanetopoulos is a speech and language pathologist who specializes in dyslexia and language based learning disabilities.  With over 30 years of experience, she has worked at the Chicago Institute for Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch, at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, in the public schools and currently has a private practice.  Over the past few years, she became very interested in the role of language in learning mathematics.  She became a member of the Chicago Innovation Exchange and the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Chicago, through which she was awarded two National Science Foundation grants.  The purpose of the grants was to more deeply understand the problems that teachers, administrators, and parents have with teaching mathematics to children who struggle with reading, writing, and language, and to then discover solutions based on the research on math learning in the brain.  Karen continually reviews new research on math learning in the brain.

    Attendees will receive 3.0 CPDUs through Northeastern Illinois University for this program.
