Dr. Finestack's long-term research goals aim to identify efficient and effective language interventions for children and adolescents with significant language impairment. In pursuit of fulfilling this goal, her research program involves three distinct foci: (a) gaining a better understanding of the cognitive and language abilities of children and adolescents with differing developmental disabilities; (b) examining the impact of these profiles on language intervention outcomes; and (c) enhancing language intervention procedures for children with language impairment.
