What We do In the Lab
But just how do children use their environmental input? And just what are those abilities and precursors to language learning? This is what we are studying at the UConn Child Language Lab. We study how kids develop in both speaking and understanding, but our focus is on language comprehension because early on, kids really seem to understand more than they can say and we want to give the kids every possible way to show what they know.
And as you look through the projects we’re involved in, you’ll see that very young children really understand a lot about language!
