ESR12: Computerized system for the screening of Specific learning and language disorders within bilingual children

Lead beneficiary: IRCCS - Associazione La Nostra Famigli 'Istituto scientifico Eugenio Medea' 

Main supervisor: M. L. Lorusso

About me:

During my studies of Clinical Linguistics at Bielefeld University (Germany), I was involved in reasearch projects e.g. on the application of tDCS in aphasia rehabilitation. Working as a speech and language pathologist, I have gained practical experience in the treatment of mono- and bilingual children with SLI and dyslexia. Due to my interest in applying new diagnostic and therapeutical approaches in speech therapy and the increasing relevance of reliable language assessment and resultingly effective therapeutical assistance, I am now involved in the research project "Computerized system for the screening of Specific learning and language disorders within bilingual children" (ESR12). There, we aim to design a computer-assisted assesment of SLI/dyslexia in bilingual children using language specific markers.
