Help us to help them
The TALAN Foundation supports clinical and applied research on attention, language and neurodevelopmental learning disorders (ALD).
The TALAN Foundation works upstream from other organizations. It
aims to promote research to better understand, identify
and intervene in neurodevelopmental disorders. The TALAN Foundation thus contributes to offering quality services based on the
most recent scientific discoveries.
For concrete solutions
The TALAN Foundation offers concrete solutions by providing 1) scholarships for excellence to university students whose research project is related to TALAN and 2) support for research projects at the Laboratoire d'études en neuropsychologie de l'enfant et de l'adolescent (LÉNEA) at the Université de Montréal.
A recent study suggests that neurodevelopmental disorders, of which TALAN is one, affect between 1 and 17% of individuals, depending on the disorder(Francés and colleagues, 2022).
Between 5 and 15% of school-aged children have a specific learning disability, the most common being dyslexia-dysorthography.

Attention deficit disorders
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that manifests itself in behavioral deficits and is often associated with cognitive deficits.
Developmental language disorder (formerly known as dysphasia or specific language impairment) is thought to result from atypical development of the brain regions responsible for language.
Dyslexia-dysorthographia is a learning disability specific to written language (reading and spelling) and dyscalculia is a learning disability specific to numeracy.
