Meeting Description:

This conference aims to bring together researchers from a range of
discipline areas including linguistics, speech pathology, psychology,
education and developmental paediatrics, all with an interest in children's
pretend play and storytelling in both typical and atypical development. The
conference aims to address questions such as the following:

- What can the kinds of stories which arise dynamically in the course of
children's pretend play tell us about the development of narrative ability in
typical and atypical children?
- What are the differences and similarities between narrative and pretend
- What can the nexus of pretend play and storytelling tell us about the
nature of cognitive development in clinical populations such as Autism
Spectrum Disorder?

The conference will feature a mixture of invited presentations, research
papers and a number of discussion panels. Presenters will be invited to
submit their papers for publication in an edited collection on the conference

The keynote speakers are:
Dr Cheryl Dissanayake, School of Psychological Science, La Trobe
Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre.
Dr Ageliki Nicolopoulou, Department of Psychology, Lehigh University.
Dr Artin Göncü, Department of Educational Psychology, College of
Education, University of Illinois at Chicago.
