Friday, December 1, 2017
Lori Skibbe, Associate Professor; Department of Human Development and Family Studies
Dr. Skibbe examines early literacy development in the context of school and families, particularly for children with special needs, who are often at-risk for reading difficulties. Dr. Skibbe also studies young children's self-regulation and how it helps children learn to read. For more information about her work, please visit the Early Language and Literacy Investigations (ELLI) lab.
Dr. Skibbe is the principal investigator on a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to develop a new assessment of early literacy skills for children with disabilities that affect the production of speech. This includes children with autism, cerebral palsy, and language impairment.
