Our lab

About our lab:

The Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Development (LLCD) investigates interactions between language and cognitive development across the lifespan. We work with typically developing children, deaf children and adults, bimodal bilinguals, and learners of an emerging sign language in Nicaragua to identify how the acquisition and use of a sign language is both shaped by and in turn shapes a learner’s cognitive abilities and how language delays affect cognitive development.
