Title: More Than Just Words: The Impact of Environment on Children’s Language Growth

Children from lower SES homes exhibit lower language skills than their peers from higher SES homes. There are many reasons for this, beyond the number of words a child hears. This talk will explore the impact of noise and other environmental factors on Spanish-speaking children’s neural language processing and behavioral outcomes.

This talk will be held in person at UT Dallas in room CRA 12.110 and also online.

Please register for the March 25 talk.
