Event Information

Open to







Roberto Filippi

Strong mathematical abilities are required for everyday living and influence employability, wages, and overall welfare. Yet, for a significant number of children learning mathematics is a real challenge. 

This presentation will focus on children with mathematical learning difficulties (MLD) and explore which groups of children are diagnosed with MLD. 

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in education.

Bridging Educational Sciences with Practice in Education seminar series

The event is part of this knowledge exchange seminar series which aims to bridge educational sciences with practice in education. IOE, in collaboration with Cambridge Primary Education Trust (CPET) and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Teaching School Hub, brings you ten leading experts in the field of Education and Psychological Sciences who will engage with you, presenting their work, and outlining policies and new strategies in education.
