Naomi wins NIH grant with Jan

Congratulations to Naomi Feldman, whose "Optimizing Input for Language Interventions" project with co-principal Patrick Shafto from Rutgers and co-investigator Jan Edwards from our own HESP has been awarded funding from the National Institutes of Health (#1R21DC017217). The project uses models of pedagogical reasoning – also known as "machine teaching" in computer science – to predict which language interventions will be most effective for helping children with Specific Language Impairment learn grammatical morphemes.
