Abstract: TBA

Bio: Marketa Caravolas is a Reader in Psychology at Bangor University. Her main research interests are in literacy development in typical populations and in groups with Specific Learning Difficulties, especially dyslexia. Much of her work includes longitudinal and cross-linguistic designs in monolingual and bilingual learners. A number of her research projects have led to the development of standarised test batteries for the assessment of children’s literacy skills in languages including English, Czech, Slovak, Spanish and Welsh. She works with researchers in the UK as well as in a number of countries in Europe and North America, and has headed up a wide variety of externally-funded, international projects pertaining to literacy development and its disorders.
