    The Abstract Language of Math and How the Brain Learns Math

    Presented by Karen Tzanetopoulos, MS, CCC-SLP

    Tuesday, October 10, 2017

    7:00 PM

    Rogers Park Montessori School

    1800 W. Balmoral

    Chicago, IL  60640

    The English language of math is abstract and complex and can interfere with learning math concepts.  Development of math concepts in the brain requires visual-spatial skills, complex language skills, and development of a mental number line, to name just a few.  This presentation will provide a basic overview of math language as well as brain development required for deep understanding of math concepts.

    Karen Tzanetopoulos is a speech and language pathologist who specializes in dyslexia and language based learning disabilities.  With over 30 years of experience, she has worked in a number of different settings and currently has a private practice.  She has been awarded two National Science Foundation grants to understand the problems adults have in teaching math to children with language based difficulties and to discover solutions based on the research on math learning in the brain.

    PLD/SE is an approved provider of professional development and continuing education by the Illinois State Board of Education for teacher certification renewal plans.  PLD/SE membership is required for CPDU credits.  

    A Certificate of Attendance can be provided upon request.
