The research of the group concerns a wide range of communication disorders: voice disorders, disorders of language development, communication disorders after brain injury, reading and spelling disorders, and hearing loss.
Each of these disorders is an independent research area, but they also share challenges and methodology with regard to assessment, treatment, and aetiology. The group is concerned with exploring the common challenges while respecting the individual aspects of each research area. The research group overlaps with the study programme in Audiologopedics.
Disorders of language development
Some children have delayed language development with regard to pronunciation, vocabulary and/or grammar. Rikke Vang Christensen is the group’s main contributor in this area.
Some children and adults have difficulties acquiring and using orthography as a means of communication, learning, entertainment. Carsten Elbro, Holger Juul, Anna Gellert, and Mads Poulsen contribute to this area, and are also part of the Centre for Reading Research.
Our voice and speech organs are important for spoken communication, but use of the voice is sometimes associated with difficulties. Jenny Iwarsson is the group’s main contributor in this area.
One can have difficulties with the perception of sound resultant from acquired or developmental hearing loss. David Jackson Morris is the group’s main contributor in this area.
Communication disorders after brain injury
Language difficulties are a common consequence of brain injury with pervasive implications for social and professional participation and well-being. Iben Christensen is the group’s main contributor in the area.
