Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the Workshop on Language Impairment in Bilingual and Multilingual Societies to take place at Bangor University on July 21, 2012. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers, academics, speech and language therapists and health professionals who work with children with typical and atypical language development. The emphasis will be on language development in a bilingual and/or a multilingual setting.

We are happy to host talks by distinguished researchers in the field of bilingualism and language impairment, such as Prof. Fred Genesee (McGill University, Canada), Prof. Shula Chiat (City University London, UK), Dr. Sharon Arnom-Lotem (Bar-Ilan University, Israel), Prof. Elin Thordadottir (McGill University, Canada), Dr Carolyn Letts (Newcastle University, UK) and Dr. Kamila Polisenska (Manchester University, UK). The talks will cover a range of issues such as bilingual development, bilingual literacy, language assessments for bilingual children, and diagnostic tools of language impairment in bilingual children.

You can find more information about the workshop under the following link:
