Insights from developmental disorders of language.

In this talk I will give an overview of findings from two large scale longitudinal projects (the Wellcome Language and Reading project and the Surrey Communication and Language in Education Study) which I worked on prior to joining Surrey in September this year.  Both studies have the broad aim of identifying risk (and protective) factors associated with developmental disorders of language. My particular interest is in understanding why developmental disorders co-occur and how this can shed light on the causes of developmental disorders. I will also discuss some ideas for future research.
