PEG funded in 2018: two in-depth case studies will evaluate use of Lego Mindstorm robots and teaching materials developed specifically for these as math aids, by students with hand-based disabilities, their teachers, and Assistive Technology team. Quantitative data collected will include 1)...
SSHRC IG awarded 2018: This project will test how children develop the ability to convey viewpoint in gestures. Children's language learning has been shown to be inextricably intertwined with their use of gestures. We expect that children's choice of viewpoint in gestures will change as they get...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2016: The goal of this project is to develop foundational knowledge on the applicability of the learning perspective to account for interference phenomena when children perform language activities. We expect to learn more about the appropriateness of interpreting interference...
SSHRC IG awarded 2016: The objectives of the proposed study are: 1] To test the validity of a widely-used model of reading fluency longitudinally (from Grade 1 to Grade 5) and across languages varying in orthographic consistency (English, Dutch, and Greek); 2] To examine the role of...
Maternal Depressive Symptoms across Early Childhood and Asthma in School Children: Findings from a Longitudinal Australian Population Based StudyDownload
There is a growing body of evidence attesting to links between early life exposure to stress and childhood asthma. However, available evidence is largely based on small, genetically high risk samples. The aim of this study was to explore the associations between the course of maternal depressive...
The iconic gesture used by two-year-old children is indicative of their knowledge and communicative abilities about objects and events. In this study, this knowledge was tested by studying the gesture produced by children with multiple language exposure and children with exposure to only one...
OBJECTIVES: Effective communication by public health agencies during a pandemic promotes the adoption of recommended health behaviours. However, more information is not always the solution. Rather, attention must be paid to how information is communicated. Our study examines the television news,...
SSHRC IG awarded 2015 (2014 competition): ESL acquisition in early childhood is not well understood or even well-documented. Early L2 child speakers appear to produce more varied types of phonological errors compared with monolingual children, some but not all of which are predictable from their...
It is considered the right of children to have their pain managed effectively. Yet, despite extensive research findings, policy guidelines and practice standard recommendations for the optimal management of paediatric pain, clinical practices remain inadequate. Empirical evidence definitively...
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down Syndrome
The Effects of LSVT®LOUD (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) on the Speech Intelligibility of Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Children with Down SyndromeDownload
The purpose of this study was to develop a pilot listening task designed to examine pre- and post-treatment intelligibility ratings, as well as error patterns, following intensive voice treatment (LSVT®LOUD), in a group of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and another group of children with Down...
