My research focuses on language and cognitive development during the infancy and preschool years. Specifically, I am interested in how young children learn the meanings of words and the role that cognitive factors and social/interactional factors play in this process. I am also interested in how language guides children's reasoning about object categories and object properties.

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.
