Scholarly and Practice Interests

My primary research and clinical interests are in the area of oral and written language disorders, particularly dyslexia. I am also interested in the development of both literacy skills and executive control processes in young children, and specialize in the area of autism spectrum disorders, especially at the pre-school level.
