caroline's Bio

Initially trained as a psychiatrist, I did a phD on episodic memory in schizophrenia (2000).

I am a tenured Inserm Researcher since 2003.

Since 10 years, I became an expert on dyspraxia. My work goes from the laboratory to the Classroom.

I conducted several studies in children with dyspraxia to study their numerical cognition, their time perception and their brain using experimental designs of cognitive psychology and fMRI.

I made numerous lectures on dyspraxia for education professionals, health professionals and families.

I wrote a book entitled "L'enfant dyspraxique : mieux l'aider à la maison et à l'école"

I created a non benefit organisation in 2010 to help children with disabilities, and more specifically with dyspraxia, at school.

I act as an expert for different ministries : I am a member of the Scientific Council of National Education in which I lead the working group on disabilities and of the National Council of Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders


"We can be a child with dyspraxia and a good Student" We have to change the way we look at disabilities and Learning disorders.
