We study the nature and causes of communication difficulties in children, especially Developmental Language Disorder.

The Oxford Study of Children's Communication Impairments (OSCCI) is funded by a programme grant from the Wellcome trust, and is headed by Principal Investigator, Professor Dorothy Bishop. We study the underlying nature of children's communication problems. Our primary focus is on developmental language disorder (DLD), but we are also interested in related conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and dyslexia.
