Research overview

My research interest is in developmental language disorder (DLD). Children with DLD show severe language deficits in the absence of frank neurological damage, acquired epileptic aphasia, autism-like behavior, sensory-neural hearing loss, and genetic conditions such as Down syndrome or cerebral palsyMy doctoral research uses meta-analytical, connectionist, and corpus-based methods to examine how lexical acquisition and processing differ in typically and atypically developing children, with the broad aim of informing approaches to assessment and intervention.
