Welcome to LiLaC!

The Literacy, Language and Communication (LiLaC) research group is housed in the Psychology Department here at Royal Holloway, University of London.

The group is directed by Professor Courtenay Frazier Norbury, who is a research psychologist and a qualified speech-language therapist.

Our aims are to better understand the development of literacy, language and social communication skills in typical development and in developmental disorders.

Our research programmes encompass children with specific language impairments, autism spectrum disorders and reading difficulties. We are committed to fostering links between researchers, practitioners and the wider community by hosting joint workshops and engaging in a variety of science outreach activities.



The RALLI campaign is ‘Raising Awareness of Language Learning Impairments’ by explaining what a language impairment is, the impact it can have and how to get help.
