[Dr. Lori Skibbe]

Dr. Lori Skibbe
Assistant Professor
Department of Human Development & Family Studies, Michigan State University

Dr. Skibbe’s program of research focuses on individual differences in the development of literacy skills for children with and without special needs. Specifically, she emphasizes three areas of research: (1) children's literacy development in the context of schools and families, (2) the associations between language impairment and emergent literacy skills, and (3) the development of appropriate techniques for assessing emergent literacy skills, capitalizing on new technologies to maximize access for children with a wide range of abilities. Her work has been funded by the Institute of Education Sciences and is published in a number of outlets, including Reading Research Quarterly, Journal of Educational Psychology, and Early Childhood Research Quarterly.
