Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

The conference seeks to address:

-Dissociations, such as talent (savant individuals) and the co-existence of deficits in the same individual (e.g., autism, developmental dyslexia): what is the nature of this co-existence (one thing at the expense of the other?); what mechanisms explain this co-existence and account for how this individual functions more or less successfully (e.g., the talent, also compensatory strategies in the deficit)
-Double dissociations (cf. White et al. 2006)
-Clusters of talent
-Co-morbidity (clusters of deficits) in some disorders (most notably dyslexia, speech and language disorders) and how to tease them apart
-The great individual variation in developmental disorders (Autism Spectrum Disorders, dyslexia) with the aim of establishing specific profiles/types within each group
