Language Development & Cognition

Cognitive development, language acquisition, literacy and learning

The Language Development and Cognition satellite brings together researchers from

Language Development & Cognition

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.

This research satellite is at the interface between Leeds Centre for Interdisciplinary Childhood and Youth Research and Language@Leeds.  If you are interested in joining, please contact Cecile De Cat at c.decat@leeds.ac.uk
