HOW CHILDREN LEARN WORDS: DIFFERENCES & COMMON PROCESSES
Prof Larissa Samuelson (School of Psychology)
Infants and toddlers vary widely in their rate of early word learning – variation that is predictive of later language development and school success.
In this lecture, Prof Larissa Samuelson will discuss the difficulties children face when learning even a single concrete noun, and the work being done in UEA’s Developmental Dynamics Laboratory to understand individual children’s unique word learning pathways – work with the goal of informing interventions for children struggling to learn words.
