Aims of the project

  • Investigate language acquisition processes in typically developing children and in children affected by language impairments and compare their different developmental paths.
  • Understand to which extent we find an overlap between Specific Language Impairments and Dyslexia.
  • Develop a set of clinical markers to identify children at risk of Specific Language Impairments or/and Dyslexia.
