Dr Courtenay Norbury on BBC News

Dr Courtenay Norbury, Head of the Literacy, Language and Communication Laboratory at Royal Holloway, University of London appeared on BBC London News throughout the day on Tuesday 27 March to discuss her new research on language development.

Dr Norbury and her team have launched the first study of its kind in the UK to find out why language difficulties develop and the impact language delay can have on children’s developmental progress and social success.

Her research group is working with schools in Surrey to screen the language skills of all children who started school in the county this academic year. A smaller cohort of 500 children will be assessed in detail over the next three years.

Dr Norbury was also interviewed for BBC Radio London.
