Dear Researcher,

We’re inviting you to the fourth edition of the International Workshop on Reading and Developmental Dyslexia in San Sebastián!

iWORDD was created back in 2013 with the aim to bring together researchers interested in advancing our knowledge about how one becomes an expert reader and about the causes and manifestations of reading difficulties such as developmental dyslexia.

The fourth edition of iWORDD will offer the research community the opportunity to get a broad overview of the current theories underlying research in the field and of the methodological challenges faced, while helping outline future directions in the investigation of developmental dyslexia. Our aim with this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas between world-class dyslexia experts through talks and debates, and facilitate transfer of knowledge between practitioners and scientists. The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of dyslexia and improve detection protocols and remediation techniques. With it limited size, iWORDD will encourage interactions among invited speakers and researchers.

The first two days (June 7-8) will be dedicated to the science and will be centered around three talks and a debate delivered by our keynote speakers, as well as around two invited symposiums. Since iWORDD aims to encompass the wide variety of theoretical views on developmental reading disorders, international experts will represent this diversity of approaches. Keynotes will be complemented by oral and poster presentations selected from abstract submissions.

Third day (From theory to Practice)
The aim of this third day (June 9th) is to promote the transfer of knowledge and interaction among researchers, parents, teachers and practitioners. \\\»iWORDD — From Theory to Practice\\\» is centered around keynote lectures delivered by international experts and tailored to a broad audience, followed by a round-table discussion. For this part of the workshop, simultaneous interpretation in Spanish, English and Basque will be provided.
