BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


My research interests are in the development of speech perception from infancy through adulthood focusing on the role of age and language experience. My current research examines development ofvowel and consonant perception and speech segmentation and includes studies on the effects of bilingualism and effects of otitis media

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.
