This year, the biennial Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) conference was in Austin, Texas! It was great to see so many colleagues from all over the world flocking the downtown conference center. Former lab member Dr. Cindy Blanco (now a postdoctoral researcher at Northwestern University) flew in from Chicago. Bright and early on Friday morning April 7th, Dr. Blanco & Dr. van der Feest – with the help of undergraduate assistant Laura Nagy – presented a poster “Effects of Listener-Oriented Speaking Styles and Semantic Context on Young Children’s Online Word Recognition”. The larger project that the study on this poster is part of, is a collaboration with Dr. Smiljanic of the UT Soundlab. For Laura, a double major in Linguistics and Communication Sciences and Disorders, SRCD was her first international conference!
