Child language acquisition

The Child Language Acquisition Group of the Center for Language and Brain studies first-language acquisition of kids both in monolingual and bilingual environment as well as language development in children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as Developmental Language Disorder / Specific Language Impairment, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and developmental dyslexia.

We do research with different age-group children: 6-to-12-month-old babies, 2-to-6-year-old children, first-grades pupils, 13-to-17-year-old adolescents. We use behavioral methods, eye-tracking, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG). We also collect and process the video materials for language acquisition corpus CHILDES.

Our Group develops the standardized tests for language assessment in children. Also, we work on the methods of speech theraphy and share our experience.

If you want to participate in our experiments, please contact us (alopukhina@hse.ru, Dr. Anastasia Lopukhina).
