The Developmental Language Disorders group investigates developmental disorders related to language, such as dyslexia and specific language impairments.
In particular, we investigate how the orthographic properties of a language (orthographic consistency and transparency) influence the reading strategies used by bilingual children (with typical and atypical trajectories) when they read in their two languages. In addition, we study the development of reading sub-skills (i.e., phonemic awareness, rapid automatized naming, visual attention span) in bilingual pre-readers and readers.
We also investigate whether the proximal cause of developmental dyslexia may be found in atypical auditory oscillatory functions affecting phase-amplitude cross-frequency coupling, and inter-hemispheric communication, with the special aim of uncovering neural biomarkers for dyslexia.
