Research Themes
Research Summary

My research focuses mainly on language and number development in both typical and atypical developmental disorders, such as Dyscalculia, Williams syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down syndrome, Sotos syndrome, and Language Impairment. Linking the aforementioned areas of research activity, I am interested in individual differences, as well as exploring what cognitive abilities and strategies relate to successful performance in typical populations and how these differ in atypical populations, in order to aid the development of economically valid training and educational programmes. Lately, my research also includes examination of implication of educational policies for parents and children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including new SEND code of practice and transitions.

I employ a range of methods and experimental designs, including intervention programmes, spontaneous language samples, questionnaires, focus groups, interviews, preferential looking, experimental tasks, new technologies and eye tracking (Tobii).
