Most of her research to date has centred on language acquisition and development, with a particular interest in socio-communicative and language development in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Recently she is most interested in investigating the very beginnings of intentionality and language acquisition. Developments in language acquisition research are coalescing on earlier and earlier stages of development as the crucial times and her work focusses on the identification and analysis of important interpersonal interactional variables for language acquisition and for overall optimal development. Using video microanalysis and advanced software and analysis programmes there are now real possibilities for accessing critical developments in the preverbal period.
