Promoting Effective Biliteracy
The project aims to develop an early screening and training programme to promote balanced bilingual development and biliteracy attainment in early childhood. Using a multimodal approach, we will identify early neural, cognitive, and environmental predictors in preschool years for later bilingual and biliteracy development. We will evaluate the neurocognitive effects of different training programmes on enhancing biliteracy development. The knowledge gained from the project will broaden our understanding of the neurocognitive development of language and reading networks in young bilinguals. The findings will have significant implications for early screening and effective training for promoting balanced bilingual and biliteracy development.
