The use of pupillometry in bilingual language assessment (Pupil-BiLa)

With the aim of technology-based early detection of multilingual children at risk for a language development disorder, this project examines certain language processing abilities of multilingual children at the beginning of their German contact by means of a special eye tracking method. Children at risk identified in this way will be assessed in a long-term study design at a later stage by extensive diagnostics of language production. Should the methodology be successfully applicable for these purposes, speech therapy could be intervened as early as possible and participatory opportunities could be increased before school entry.

Further information and the contact person can be found under"Pupil-BiLa".
