Research overview

I’m interested in the development of perspective taking by young children, in response to oral narratives. The aim of my PhD research is to examine influences of simultaneous cognitive and social development and early experiences of narrative on perspective taking in young children, which has not been previously examined. As such, this work has the potential to provide critical evidence for modelling narrative comprehension in pre-readers and extend our understanding of literacy development.
