Language is a Treasure Trove! That is What the Project is About

Connection to University of Toronto and Trent University

The project Investigators have a long history of collaboration on a wide variety of topics and a range of dissemination activities with different stakeholders (e.g., the Ministries of Child and Youth Services and Education, school boards in Ontario, educators and parents). Our expertise includes theoretical and conceptual aspects of learning and development, language and cognition, literacy and academic achievement, assessment issues in culturally and linguistically diverse groups, socioemotional development, and research-based policy papers. Our successful collaborations have resulted in research funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada-SSHRC, (Farnia & Cohen; Geva & Farnia; Im-Bolter & Farnia), Canadian Institute for Health Research (Cohen, Farnia, Im-Bolter), Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health-CHEO (Cohen, Farnia, Im-Bolter), and Public Health Agency of Canada (Cohen & Farnia).
