Description: The Math Skills Development Project (MSDP) researches how cognitive, behavioral, and genetic factors contribute toward successful mathematics achievement. Through longitudinal studies of math ability and achievement during the early school years, the Project seeks to understand early math ability, math learning disability (MLD), and MLD subtypes; and to identify early indicators (in kindergarten through third grade) of later poor math achievement. Elementary School Math Project (ESMP) studies have included "Math Skills in Girls with Fragile X Syndrome," "Math Skills in Girls with Turner Syndrome," "Math Skills in Children with Barth Syndrome," and "Math Skills in Children with Neurofibromatosis." Read MSDP manuscripts published in journals ranging from Nature and Brain and Cognition to Developmental Disabilities Research Reviews and Journal of Learning Disabilities, such as "Why is Math Hard for Some Children: The Nature and Origins of Mathematics Learning Difficulties and Disabilities" and "Is it a fact? Timed arithmetic performance of children with mathematical learning disabilities (MLD) varies as a function of how MLD is defined." MSDP is a project of the Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins University.
