Research interests:

I am studying the nature of interaction mainly joint writing and storybook reading and their implications for early literacy and socio-emotional development in Hebrew and Arab communities.

Addressing needs in special populations, my work examines these interactions in parent-child dyads from low socioeconomic background and also in children with specific challenges including hearing loss, ADHD and precocious reading.

In line with these studies' results, I conduct early interventions aimed at improving preschool teachers' as well as parents' mediation and children's early literacy and socio-emotional development.
