Jamaican children's speech and language research continues

At the ASHA convention, I co-authored two presentations about our research in Jamaica
  • Washington, K. N., McLeod, S., McFarland, A., Weisbarth, J. (2014).  Jamaican Creole-speaking children’s expressive language, emergent literacy & communicative-participation: SLP, parent, and teacher evaluations. Technical paper.
  • Weisbath, J., Washington, K. N., McLeod, S., Samms-Vaughan, M., & Devonish, H. (2014, November). Print concept development in English: Comparing Jamaican preschoolers to US ELL and monolingual English-speaking preschoolers. Poster. 
 After the ASHA convention, Karla Washington and I met to plan grants, papers, and data analysis.
