About our lab
Our lab studies what sorts of factors help or hinder language learning in both typically developing and developmentally delayed populations. Specific areas of research include understanding the role that sensory processing and sensory integration play in language learning and development, measuring and improving methods designed to help children diagnosed with autism learn to communicate more effectively, and reserach on cognitive aspects of language learning and processing in young children and adults.
Our lab frequently conducts experiments in collaboration with the Speech and Hearing Center and Pediatric Language Clinic. We are dedicated to collaborating with clinics in the region and a wide range of faculty at both the University of Tennessee as well as other universities.
