My research focuses on the prevention of reading difficulties among young at-risk children. Specifically, my aims are to contribute to the field’s knowledge about: (a) preschool language and literacy development, and (b) preschool intervention efforts focused on improving teacher-child instructional interactions and children’s subsequent language and literacy outcomes.
