This set of studies is aimed at investigating aspects of the structure of language input (orthographic, phonological, and semantic) that contribute to differential developmental outcomes in language and reading. This is a collaboration with Chris Cox (former lab member, faculty member at LSU), and Tim Rogers (faculty here at UW).

This project has many components. There is an education-facing aspect of the project where we are analyzing real reading curricula, and a purely computational set of modeling exercises. This page has information for all the sub-projects associated with our work on curriculum analyses and modeling.
