Dr. Nadia Nosworthy is an Assistant Professor in the department of Graduate Psychology and Counseling, teaching courses in the areas of cognitive psychology, biological psychology, human development and special education. Dr. Nosworthy was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada where she spent a few years as an elementary school teacher before pursuing her graduate studies at the University of Western Ontario.
Dr. Nosworthy’s present research focuses on basic numerical processing skills in children and she is currently developing a classroom assessment tool used to measure these foundational abilities. This assessment tool has been tested in Canada as well as in Cambodia, India and Kenya through collaborations with the Global Partnership for Education of the World Bank and the African Health and Population Research Center. Her goal is to examine the relationship between basic numerical processing skills in the primary grades and individual differences in mathematical competence as well as the theoretical and educational implications of this relationship across cultures.
