Helping disadvantaged nursery children to develop their language skills | Research for the Real World

We meet an IOE researcher focused on the development of language in young people, particularly for those disproportionately affected by the pandemic and living in deprived areas.


Dr Claire Forrest is a Developmental Psychologist with an interest in language development, developmental disorders, emotion regulation and social functioning.


Our presenter Emily MacLeod finds out about Dr Forrest’s projects involving nursery settings in England’s northeast and London, working in conjunction with staff, parents, carers and children themselves.
