The PsyNaps group are all very proud of PhD student Barbara Piotrowska, who won the ‘Best Extended Oral Presentation’ award at the School of Life Sport, and Social Sciences Postgraduate Research Conference last week.
Barbara presented her research entitled ‘Visuo-motor integration in dyslexia: the development of a novel screening tool’. Barbara told us that “dyslexia is a continuum of difficulties in learning to read affecting around 10% of the British population. Early identification and intervention are crucial in both language remediation and in limiting the low self-esteem and behavioural problems often reported in unrecognised dyslexia”.
Very well done to all of other presenters from the PsyNaps group too, you were all fantastic!
