Bilingual Development in Context website launched
Giang Pham, Assistant Professor of Communication Disorders, recently announced the launch of her research lab's new website. The Bilingual Development in Context Lab investigates language development among bilingual children, particularly children who speak a minority first language such as Vietnamese or Spanish and who learn English early in childhood. Using a Dynamic Systems approach to development, the lab examines interactions between first and second languages as well as between language, cognitive, and social systems across varying timescales and ability/disability levels.
