RESEARCH OVERVIEW

Improving Access to Effective Intervention for Children with Reading Disabilities

Our research focuses on two overarching questions:

  1. How are dyslexia and language impairment related?

  2. How can we use educational technology to improve professional education?

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

DIAGNOSTIC PRACTICES FOR DYSLEXIA

We are recruiting children who have been tested for dyslexia to participate in a research study. The study explores how dyslexia is diagnosed. You can earn $25 for participating. Click here to learn more!

PREVALENCE OF SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IMPAIRMENT IN CHILDREN WITH DYSLEXIA

It is well documented that many children with specific language impairment have co-occurring dyslexia. It is still unknown, however, how often language impairment co-occurs in children who are identified with dyslexia. This project aims to quantify the overlap between dyslexia and specific language impairment to improve identification and service delivery for both disorders.

We are looking for schools and/or districts who might be interested in partnering with us for this project. Please email readinglab@uga.edu to discuss potential collaborations.

SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGISTS' KNOWLEDGE OF DYSLEXIA

In an effort to increase collaboration between teachers and SLPs, we need to identify shared knowledge between the two groups. Toward that end, we are investigating SLPs' existing knowledge of dyslexia and methods for improving their knowledge.
