Cognitive development, language acquisition, literacy and learning
The Language Development and Cognition satellite brings together researchers from
- the School of Education: Mohammad Ahmadian, Paula Clarke, Yvonne Griffiths, Shirley-Anne Paul, James Simpson, Ruth Swanick,

Focusing on children and adolescents, our research encompasses cognitive development, language acquisition (of a first or an additional language), literacy and learning, as well as the interplay between these. We study different cognitive and learning profiles, and seek to identify factors influencing successful outcomes.
