Influenced formulation of diagnostic guidelines
We study the nature and causes of communication difficulties in children, especially Specific Language Impairment.
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 specific language impairment (SLI), but we are also interested in related conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and dyslexia.
