Dorothy Bishop – ‘Cognitive learning theories and language intervention: can we bridge the gap?’

over het samenbrengen van leertheorie├źn en taalinterventies

Most children learn their native language relatively effortlessly, but some children struggle and may never achieve full competence.  For many years, research has focused on perceptual and linguistic aspects of developmental language disorders, but relatively little attention has been paid to actual learning mechanisms. In this presentation I will consider recent work about processes of learning and memory that has implications for how we might facilitate language learning in children.
