ANTUNES, Andressa Moreira et al. Neuropsychological rehabilitation of mathematical learning disabilities in the Turner syndrome: a single case study. Neuropsicologia Latinoamericana [online]. 2013, vol.5, n.spe, pp. 66-75. ISSN 2075-9479.

This study aimed to characterize the neuropsychological profile of a child with Turner syndrome and to develop mathematics rehabilitation programs based on her cognitive profile. M.F.C. has a mathematical learning disability associated to a deficit in number sense. The first intervention program aimed to remedy the number sense; however it was not effective. The second program was developed to compensate mathematical deficits through cognitive training of multiplication facts. This last program showed greater therapeutic effect, and its gains have been maintained even after four months of the intervention. The results of this study demonstrate that, in this case, intervention programs that use compensatory strategies combined with psychotherapeutic aspects are more effective than reparative ones.
