≪Organizer Abstract≫
New discoveries in developmental, social, and cognitive psychology and neurosciences bring us closer to understanding how normal developing infants, children and adolescents learn in life and at school and what might be the challenges faced by infants, children and adolescents with learning disorders. Such learning processes have been studied in important academic acquisition such as in language acquisition, reading and mathematics as well as in social cognition and executive functions. The aim of this symposium is to present novel findings in the fields of developmental, cognitive and social psychology and neurosciences related to learning at school (language acquisition, reading, maths, science) and to discuss how these findings can shape education in the future for instance by designing pedagogical interventions to help children overcome difficulties at school or by informing teachers and parents on social stereotypes that might affect how well children and adolescents perform at school.
