Language impairment: Evaluation and remediation

Equipe 1.jpg


We study neurodevelopmental language disorders in children and adults using an applied approach so as to better assess and manage these disorders.


We focus on:


  •  dynamic language assessment in children as a means to diagnose Developmental Language Disorder (DLD), particularly in a multilingual context, and to inform speech-language therapy;


  • the understanding and remediation of spelling disorders in children and adults with Specific Learning Disorder (SLD);


  • the persistence of language disorders in adults with DLD and the remediation of these disorders;


  • the links between executive functions (attention, working memory) and syntax in children with DLD, Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD);


  • the evaluation of the effectiveness of speech-language therapy in children following the principles of Evidence-Based Practice.
