Welcome to the website of the Language and Literacy Research Laboratory at Queen’s University, Faculty of Education. This lab conducts research in reading development and reading difficulties, focusing on three main areas: linguistic stress, early intervention for struggling readers, and reading development in second language learners. We receive most of our funding from the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council.
We are a busy lab with a number of active students from the faculties of Education, Psychology, and Linguistics. If you are a parent, teacher, or principal who has been approached as a partner in research, please check out our Frequently Asked Questions for more information about the kind of work we do with students in elementary schools and daycares.
