My research interests focus primarily on the contributions of society, culture and context to descriptions and perceptions of impairment and the theoretical and clinical impact of these variables on language assessment and intervention. These research interests can be described with respect to four principal directions: (1) the development of language and literacy in children with communication disorders, particularly children with hearing loss, (2) issues related to the integration of these children into regular classroom settings, (3) the impact of instructional and narrative discourse structures on the classroom performance of these children, and (4) the development of culturally appropriate assessment, intervention, and service delivery models for minority children.

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.
