My colleague, Elaine Weitzman, and I are interested in examining how early childhood educators stimulate language development of young children in day care settings. We are exploring the interactions of caregivers and young children with language impairment, and ways to train the caregivers how to stimulate language development effectively and efficiently.

In addition, we are interested in early intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and are investigating the effects of a parent-focused language intervention program for families with children who have ASD.

In a second project with Principal Investigator, Dr. Pat Cleave, we are examining the efficacy of group language and emergent literacy intervention for children with language disorders.

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.
