Dr Wolfgang Mann
I am a Senior Lecturer in Special and Inclusive Education at the University of Roehampton, London. My teaching and research activities focus on the following areas:
- Language and cognitive development
- (Sign-) language acquisition and assessment
- Computer- and mobile-assisted language testing
- Quantitative Research Methods
I am currently collaborating with Professor Gary Morgan to investigate signing deaf children’s response to dynamic assessment and on lexical semantic organization in signed and spoken language.
