Research description:

I am investigating the roles that morphology and syntax play in the acquisition of academic language and the development of complex syntax. Specific areas of interest include how children with and without language impairment attend to the features of adult grammatical structures. I hope to collaborate in developing assessment measures of complex syntax and early academic language attainment.
