Curriculum Vitae
How children acquire the abilities to recognize the phonetic-level structure of their native language and to produce speech with the gestural organization typical of their native language;
What role the ability to recognize that structure plays in language processing;
What conditions of childhood support the ontogeny of these skills;
Precisely how perceptual processing of the speech signal is affected by deleterious conditions such as poverty, frequent otitis media with effusion, and sensorineural hearing loss.
This video was created during the summer of 2012. The above video reflects the combined perspective of research being conducted in our laboratory.
