I am interested in the relationship between cognitive processing, language acquisition and linguistic input, particularly for children with language disorders. I have been part of running a longitudinal study "Learning to Talk" which investigated early measures of working memory as predictors of later language outcomes for late talking and typically developing children. I have also developed and normed a standardized articulation test for school aged children and have researched how to best rate the severity of children with speech sound disorders. Currently I am investigating parent linguistic input for young children as a preventative measure for language delays.
