Societal contributions & collaborations

We teach at Maastricht University, where we give lectures, tutor and coordinate courses in the psychology bachelor, and cognitive neuroscience master and research master programs. Furthermore, our group supervises various research internships for bachelor and (research) master students.

We communicate our research findings to scientific and general audiences by means of academic or public lectures and workshops. For example, we give general audience lectures (e.g. Studium Generale, de Balie) and lectures on national seminars/symposia for scientists, teachers and professionals dyslexia healthcare (e.g. dyslexiecongres, nationale dyslexie conferentie). Examples of interviews, professional publications are: Remedial Teaching, Cahier Brein in de Groei, Bestaat dyslexie?

For our reading and dyslexia research we collaborate with the Regional Center of Dyslexia (RID) and national leading centers for dyslexia diagnosis and treatment, as well as with the RBC center for learning disabilities and schools for primary and secondary education. In collaboration with the MUMC+ we investigate language and speech problems in classic galactosemia patients.
