BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


Her research interests are oriented towards the perception and localization of warning sounds (ex. audible pedestrians signals, fire alarms); potential discrimination against individuals with hearing losses, language or speech disorders; the adaptation of workstations for people with communication disorders; noise and safety in the workplace; and the development of functional evaluation tools for communication disorders. She has received grants and research contracts from major agencies(ex. SSHRC, NSERC, NCE, PREA, IRSST, RMOC, Canadian Coast Guard, CN REPAR).

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.
