Major Research Activities

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.
