My research aims to understand and promote early speech, language, and social communication development for all children, in order to support later language and literacy success. The current focus of my research is to understand the relationship between early storybook reading (also known as shared reading, parent-child book reading, teacher/educator-child book reading) and later academic achievement. My research is also driven to support parents and teachers/educators with book reading to capitalise on the opportunity book reading during the early years provides for strengthening later language and literacy development.
