Representational Gesture and Symbolic Development
Data collection for this project is underway.
Autobiographical and Fictional Narratives
Data collection for this study is complete and we are in the analysis phase. This study examines narrative development in the 8- to 11-year-old age group. In particular we asked children to tell some stories about their own experiences and to watch a cartoon and retell that story. A preliminary analysis of this project was presented October 2016.
