Research Statement

“One main focus of my research has been to provide information on the nature and course of language disorders across different clinical populations (e.g. specific language impairment, ADHD, cerebral palsy) with special attention to the acquisition of morphosyntactic competence. A complementary research focus of mine has been trying to untangle the relationships between primary language impairments and the emergence of secondary socioemotional difficulties.”

Research Keywords

  • Specific language impairment
  • Socioemotional development
  • Grammatical development
  • Differential diagnosis
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
