In this worldwide panorama, it a great challenge for education professionals to attend to a large group of students with Learning Difficulties (LD), as these difficulties manifest themselves in a variety of ways and the cause is often multifactorial and not always detectable. This Professional Master’s Degree emerges as an answer to the increased demand for professionals (both in the health and educational fields) well-prepared with up-to-date and relevant knowledge. It provides the necessary skills to successfully face the challenges posed by the integral development of personality among diverse children and adolescents, with their different needs, styles, interests and conditions, but especially those with difficulties in learning to read, write, do mathematics and adapt to different environments.  

In this way, learning difficulties are assessed from an integrative view of neurobiological, linguistic, psycho-pedagogical and social factors. We also assess their relationship with cognitive activity (perception, attention, memory, emotions, imagination, motivation, thinking, language and intelligence), deficiencies in teaching methodologies and practices, social conditions of development, as well as their manifestations in the basic instrumental areas (reading, writing and mathematics) and in school, social adaptation and interaction.   

The design of the program a was developed by an academic committee composed of specialists with experience in the clinical, educational and social fields. These professionals contribute their expertise to support the postgraduate education needs of teachers working in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams, school management structures and specialized care.
