My research interests are in the areas of cognitive and social development. I have investigated these broad areas with both general and special needs populations. Lately, my research has moved in two circles. The first investigates the life experiences of children and adults with special needs and the second, the use of computers in education.

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.
