This lecture focuses on language and literacy development in deaf children. In particular, Dr Kate Rowley discusses what skills deaf children need to have prior to learning to read and the importance of language for literacy attainment.
Reading processes in deaf children are discussed at this event, along with important predictors of reading success for deaf children. Dr Rowley also covers the typical milestones in language acquisition for deaf children and the implications of delayed language and language deprivation.
The lecture will be delivered in British Sign Language, and interpretations into English will be provided. It will be followed by a drinks reception.
