The percentage of school failure remains uncontrolled despite the alleged improvements in the education system

More of 30 experts from multiple sectors analyzed the situation in the largest international online event on learning, child development and education organized by the Sevillian neuropediatra Manuel Antonio Fernández, director of the Andalusian Institute of Pediatric Neurology and that it has had 6452 participants from Spain and Latin America among families and professionals in the sector.

Spain presents some alarming figures of school failure that are around 20-25% for years and a long history of poor results in the different educational indicators such as those analyzed in the PISA report.

The Spanish students (35,943) that were examined between May and April 2018 obtained in Science the lowest grade since there is a record of this subject, while in Mathematics, we stagnated: we fell five points compared to 2015

Given that the frequency of ADHD (7%), the Dyslexia (9-10%) and High capacities (8-9%) add up together around from 24-26%, it is easy to see the relationship between both factors. Precisely because of the lack of information and training on these aspects, it is not really possible to implement really effective solutions.

I Virtual Learning and Development Congress This is a pioneer event that responds to the demand for training and resources for the increasing number of parents, educators and health workers who are aware of the need for a comprehensive approach from the classroom, consultation and family to promote a better normalization of the situation of children with difficulties and thus, help them achieve the academic results they deserve and with it, The overall results of our country.

This event has had the support of the main scientific societies of the sector such as the Spanish Association of Pediatrics (with more than 9000 members) or the Spanish Society of Pediatric Neurology as well as associations of affected nationally and entities such as the educational sections of Microsoft and Hawei. It has been able to continue from any part of the world through the Internet at no cost during the days of its issuance and is currently accessible by paying a virtual ticket.

The First Virtual Learning and Development Congress has taken place with a double objective.

First, join professionals and families in the same forum to discuss the problems and challenges of the education and health system against the main causes of most difficulties in the classroom such as learning problems arising from ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), dyslexia, High capacities and autism.

Second, bring together a cast of first-rate specialized speakers to update the latest knowledge about and bring new solutions to the same problems that we are suffering in the last decades and that continue without solving in spite of increasing the educational investment.

Thus, they will be responsible for associations and organizations such as Fundación CADAH, Dislexia Sevilla, The World of the Gifted or Autism Confederation Spain, together with directors of ICT reference tools and the reference professionals of each sector who will present the keys to address the current situation of each area. Neuroscience experts will detail the keys to these disorders from a medical, psychological and neuropsychological perspective. And, finally, it will be the educators specialized in this group who contribute their vision of how the education of the 21st century should be.

Among the speakers we have specialists in the different professional sectors such as:

-Manuel Antonio Fernández, Neuropediatra Director of the Andalusian Institute of Pediatric Neurology of Seville and chosen multiple times as the best pediatrician in Spain at the awards Doctoralia Awards. Again nominated this year.

-Jose Ramón Gamo, Psychologist Director of the CADE center of Madrid and TED lecturer.

-Carla A. Carvalho Gómez, Neuropsychologist creator of talk to us, the main neuroscience web portal and teacher at the INANP Academy.

-Light Rellolinguist creator of the technological-social project Change Dyslexia whose main objective is the global reduction of dropout rates due to dyslexia and writer of the book "overcoming dyslexia" which has made him one of the greatest international references on the subject.

-Juan Fernández, Master and creator of the school of experiences for educators to help them improve their professional development thanks to quality work with their students.

The event has also had the participation of associations of affected, parents and pioneer companies in the development of technology to detect or treat learning problems such as.

-Gema Climent. Considered as one of the most powerful European women in the world of technology by Forbes magazine, this neuropsychologist is the CEO of Nesplora, a company based in the Basque Country that has headed European Commission research projects and who has designed the best tests of ADHD assessment based on virtual reality and 3D technology, which have become a gold standard worldwide

-Alberto Ramirez. Project Manager DIDE, aimed at facilitating the early detection of children's learning and development problems thanks to a non-intrusive assessment system that has recently received the seal of excellence of the European Union and that will facilitate a much more efficient use of economic resources to administrations by allowing more cases to be detected with a lower cost that allows focusing the investment on the personnel needed for the intervention.

'Aprendizaje y Desarrollo', an online congress on neuroscience and education that focuses on children with problems of study, behavior or development with the aim of changing the action paradigm and breaking the glass floor of school failure in Spain but also, in the rest of Spanish-speaking countries.
