About Kirsten Read

My research focuses on early language development, how most children becomes so fast and fluent in understanding and using language in just the first few years of life - no small task! My most recent studies involve looking at how common kinds of language experiences, specifically  story book reading and language play, can help children use their own predictions to learn new words.
