My research focuses on typical and disordered child speech/language development, and disorders with an emphasis on early grammar and syntactic categories across the lifespan. Among the specific populations, I investigate deafness with cochlear implants, late talking children, children with Specific Language Impairment, prematurity, genetic disorders (Autism Spectrum Disorder, Smith Magenis, Bardet-Biedl. My research approach is computational analysis of spoken language corpora, using TalkBank utilities http://childes.talkbank.org and HomeBank https://homebank.talkbank.org/. I also analyze large linguistic corpora using Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) such as Language ENvironment Analysis system (LENA™).
