BiographyContactKeywordsAssociated Projects


I am intested in language development as it relates to behavior problems and peer relationship difficulties. We are conducting two important population based longitudinal studies of births cohorts, including a representative study of Quebec and a large twin sample. These children are now entering school.

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.
