  1. 1. Dealing with Digits : Arithmetic, Memory and Phonology in Deaf Signers

    Author : Josefine Andin; Mary Rudner; Jerker Rönnberg; Örjan Dahlström; Lars Nyberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Adult deaf signers; phonology; arithmetic; short-term memory; working memory; neuro imaging; Vuxna teckenspråkiga döva; fonologi; aritmetik; korttidsminne; arbetsminne; hjärnavbildning;

    Abstract : Deafness has been associated with poor abilities to deal with digits in the context of arithmetic and memory, and language modality-specific differences in the phonological similarity of digits have been shown to influence short-term memory (STM). Therefore, the overall aim of the present thesis was to find out whether language modality-specific differences in phonological processing between sign and speech can explain why deaf signers perform at lower levels than hearing peers when dealing with digits.

  2. 2. “Count on me!” : Mathematical development, developmental dyscalculia and computer-based intervention

    Author : Linda Olsson; Ulf Träff; Joakim Samuelsson; Lisa Thorell; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematical development; symbolic number processing; Approximate number system; developmental dyscalculia; computer-based intervention; matematisk utveckling; symboliskt nummerprocessande; Approximativa nummersystemet; dyskalkyli; datorbaserad intervention;

    Abstract : A “sense” of number can be found across species, yet only humans supplement it with exact and symbolic number, such as number words and digits. However, what abilities leads to successful or unsuccessful arithmetic proficiency is still debated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mathematical Learning Disability : Cognitive Conditions, Development and Predictions

    Author : Rickard Östergren; Ulf Träff; Joakim Samuelsson; Örjan Dahlström; Åke Olofsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Mathematical learning disability; dyscalculia; mathematical cognition; number sense; Matematiska inlärningssvårigheter; dyskalkyli; matematisk kognition; antalsuppfattning;

    Abstract : The purpose of the present thesis was to test and contrast hypotheses about the cognitive conditions that support the development of mathematical learning disability (MLD). Following hypotheses were tested in the thesis: a) domain general deficit, the deficit is primarily located in the domain general systems such as the working memory, b) number sense deficit, the deficit is located in the innate approximate number system (ANS), c) numerosity coding deficit, the deficit is located to a exact number representation system, d) access deficit, the deficit is in the mapping between symbols and the innate number representational system (e.

  4. 4. Assessment and Remediation for Children with Special Educational Needs : The role of Working Memory, Complex Executive Function and Metacognitive Strategy Training

    Author : Petri Partanen; Örjan Sundin; Jan Lisspers; Billy Jansson; Ann-Charlotte Smedler; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Children with special educational needs; Assessment; Working memory; Working memory training; Complex executive function; Planning; Metacognition; Mathematical learning difficulties; Barn i behov av stöd; Utredning; Arbetsminne; Arbetsminnesträning; Komplex exekutiv funktion; Planering; Metakognition; Matematiksvårigheter;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to explore the role of different assessment tools and training regimens in assessment and remediation for children with special educational needs in school. A central purpose of assessment explored was that it should inform remediation, teaching and instruction. READ MORE
