The Language Acquisition and Visual Attention Lab

Researchers in the Language Acquisition and Visual Attention Lab study the relationship between language and visual attention in deaf and hearing individuals. Using a range of approaches, from observations of parents and children interacting to experimental eye-tracking studies, we ask how deaf children learning American Sign Language learn to perceive both language and information about the world through the visual mode.

The Language and Visual Attention Lab is currently accepting graduate students for Fall 2017. For more information and to apply, please contact lab Director Dr. Amy Lieberman.
