About the Group

The Language Development and Cognition satellite brings together researchers from

Focusing on children and adolescents, our research encompasses cognitive development, language acquisition (of a first or an additional language), literacy and learning, as well as the interplay between these.  We study different cognitive and learning profiles, and seek to identify factors influencing successful outcomes.

This research satellite is at the interface between L-CYR and Language@Leeds.  If you are interested in joining, please contact Cecile De Cat at c.decat@leeds.ac.uk
