Understanding how deaf children and adults learn sign language | Research for the Real World

Professor Chloë Marshall drops into the Research for the Real World virtual studio to talk to Dr Sam Sims about her work focusing on language development in deaf children and in particular, sign language development.

We hear about the challenges in diagnosing developmental delays among deaf children, the creation of a toolkit to aid awareness for teachers and education professionals, the relationship between language acquisition and executive function, and the pandemic’s effect on deaf people in a time of mask-wearing.
