Check out two new articles from the DLL lab. The first article is by Dr. Carol Hammer and lab alum, Dana Bitteti, ‘A population-based study of later talkers’ school readiness accepted for publication in the Journal of Speech-Language-Hearing Research. The purposes of study were to: “(a) identify sociodemographic, pregnancy and birth, family health, and parenting and child care risk factors for being a late talker at 24 months of age; (b) determine whether late talkers continue to have low vocabulary at 48 months; and (c) investigate whether being a late talker plays a unique role in children’s school readiness at 60 months.”
