Socio-Emotional and Cognitive Resilience in Children with Learning Challenges

A session at Learning & the Brain 42: The Science of Character

Sunday 15th November, 2015

8:30am to 9:45am (EST)

This talk will discuss the work from our lab and others on the cognitive and brain bases of achievement gap including those stemming from learning disabilities such as dyslexia. We argue that by understanding the mechanism underlying cognitive resilience (e.g. executive function) and socio-emotional resilience (e.g. motivation and minimal stereotype threat), we have the potential to help close the achievement gap in these children.
