Event details

This event is held as part of the NTU Language, Literacy, and Psycholinguistics Research Group.

The Language, Literacy, and Psycholinguistics Research Group produces transformative research focused on both skilled and developing performance in spoken language, reading, writing, spelling, audition, and sentence processing. We investigate both typical and atypical populations (e.g. dyslexia, specific language impairment, autism, cochlear implant users) to better understand the underlying mechanisms involved in language processing and related areas (e.g. statistical learning, cognition) and how best to alleviate any difficulties in relation to them. In addition to standard methodologies, our work also benefits from a range of technologies such as eye-tracking, handwriting fluency capture, and computational modelling. We have several cross-disciplinary collaborations with other members of the Department, other Research Centres, and national and international researchers. We have been funded by numerous awarding bodies (e.g., The Leverhulme Trust, Education Endowment Foundation, British Academy), work with key stakeholders (e.g., National Literacy Trust, NHS, Norwegian National Reading Centre), have widely published our work (e.g., Developmental Science, Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research), and work with numerous national and international collaborators.
