Research Summary
My research falls along two lines. First, I am interested in the role of auditory processing deficits in the development of language disorders such as specific language impairment and dyslexia. In investigating this question, I have worked with children with mild to moderate hearing impairment, asking how auditory deficits in this population might be linked to language outcomes. I have also been involved in studies trying to characterise auditory processing disorder, and its implications for development. My second main research area is auditory learning and training. Here, I have been involved in studies designed to understand the mechanisms and rules underlying auditory learning in normally-hearing adults. More recent work has looked at the efficacy of auditory training programmes as tools for improving language abilities in children.
