Later Language Lab

The Later Language Development Lab is directed by Gerard (Trace) Poll, Ph.D. Dr. Poll’s research focuses on developmental language disorders in school-aged children, adolescents and young adults. He is interested in developing better assessment practices and better defining the cognitive and linguistic characteristics of language-learning disorders. His work also focuses on enabling adolescents with disabilities to be better prepared for the transition from K-12 education to adult settings such as post-secondary training, employment, and community participation.
