My Profile

BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated ProjectsStudent Info


I am interested in cognitive development in young children, particularly with respect to skill acquisition and symbolic representation. I am especially interested in the implications that developmental research has for educational changes and social/policy reforms. Furthermore, my interests have recently extended to clinical research areas, including neurodevelopmental disorders, particularly among Aboriginal children.

Future Interests:

Not available.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
