Dr. William Jenkins, Co-Founder Of Scientific Learning, To Speak At International Conference On Child Development And Learning

Dr. William Jenkins, co-founder and chief scientific officer of Scientific Learning Corp. (NASDAQ:SCIL), will be a featured presenter at the International Conference on Child Development and Learning on Dec. 17 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Scientific Learning is the creator of the Fast ForWord® and Reading Assistant™ family of products, neuroscience-based educational software products used in more than 40 countries around the world.

The International Conference on Child Development and Learning brings together researchers working in the fields of linguistics, neuro-cognitive science, psychology, speech therapy, and language education, with a focus on how to help children with delays in language development and reading. Conference attendees will include professionals in education, second language acquisition, speech science, and teacher training.

In his presentation, Jenkins will explain how brain plasticity research has shown that the brain can be exercised to improve its function and to take advantage of whatever content is presented to the learner. He will demonstrate how children can improve their capacity to learn by building memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing — cognitive skills essential for learning and reading success. Participants will learn how schools around the world are using acoustically modified speech technology to accelerate language and reading development for students across a wide spectrum of ages and abilities.
