Titeca, Daisy; Roeyers, Herbert; Ceulemans, Annelies; Desoete, Annemie – Early Education and Development, 2015
Research Findings: To date, studies comparing the mathematical abilities of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developing children are scarce, and results remain inconclusive. In general, studies on this topic focus on mathematical abilities learned from elementary school onward, with little attention for possible…

Desoete, Annemie – International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, 2009
A majority of studies on learning disabilities have focused on elementary grades. Although problems with learning disabilities are life-affecting only a few studies focus on deficits in adults. In this study adults with isolated mathematical disabilities (n = 101) and adults with combined mathematical and reading disabilities (n = 130) solved…

De Weerdt, Frauke; Desoete, Annemie; Roeyers, Herbert – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
Children with reading disabilities (RD, n = 17), mathematical disabilities (MD, n = 22), combined reading and mathematical disabilities (RD + MD, n = 28) and control peers (n = 45) were tested on behavioral inhibition with a Go/no-go task in a picture, letter and digit-modality. In contrast to children without RD, children with RD made…

Burny, Elise; Valcke, Martin; Desoete, Annemie – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2012
Recent studies have shown that children with mathematics difficulties (MD) have weaknesses in multiple areas of mathematics. Andersson, for example, recently found that children with MD perform significantly worse than other children on clock reading tasks. The present study builds on this recent finding and aims at a more profound understanding…

Desoete, Annemie; De Weerdt, Frauke – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2013
Working memory, inhibition and naming speed was assessed in 22 children with mathematical learning disorders (MD), 17 children with a reading learning disorder (RD), and 45 children without any learning problems between 8 and 12 years old. All subjects with learning disorders performed poorly on working memory tasks, providing evidence that they…

De Weerdt, Frauke; Desoete, Annemie; Roeyers, Herbert – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2013
Elementary school children with reading disabilities (RD; "n" = 17), mathematical disabilities (MD; "n" = 22), or combined reading and mathematical disabilities (RD+MD; "n" = 28) were compared to average achieving (AA; "n" = 45) peers on working memory measures. On all working memory components, 2 (RD vs. no…

Desoete, Annemie; Praet, Magda; Titeca, Daisy; Ceulemans, Annelies – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
The sensitivity of number sense as cognitive phenotype for mathematical learning disabilities (MLD) was assessed in siblings of children with MLD (n = 9) and age matched children without family members with MLD (n = 63). A number line estimation paradigm was used as a measure of children's early number sense. In line with the triple code model of…
