Professor Gina Conti-Ramsden (PhD., FBPsS, FRCSLT, FAcSS) - research

Research interests

I am particularly interested in Specific language impairment (SLI) and its longitudinal lifecourse from childhood to adolescence.  I am also interested  psycholinguistic development of children with SLI including potential clinical markers for SLI; the psychosocial outcomes of children with SLI; the genetics/familiality of SLI; the educational/life transitions of children and young people with SLI; uses of new media and SLI and the overlap between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and SLI.
