Research

I am doctoral student specialising in developmental language disorder (DLD) at Lancaster University. 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 palsy. My doctoral research uses meta-analytical and corpus methods to examine how lexical acquisition and processing differ in children with DLD and typically developing children. Details of my current projects can be found at my Open Science Framework page.
