Dr Jeremy Law

  • Lecturer in Education (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)

Biography

My research and teaching interests focus on developmental disabilities and literacy with a specific interest and expertise relating to developmental dyslexia. Recently my research has been focused on examining specific cognitive factors related to reading and spelling compensation of children and adults with dyslexia. In the course of my research, I have conducted a range of longitudinal and concurrent studies examining prereading indicators of dyslexia such as early phonological and auditory processing impairments. Furthermore, my work with high achieving individuals with dyslexia has focused on identifying specific factors ( such as morphological awareness) related to the reading success and resilient of these individuals. I have recently assumed the position of Lecturer in Education in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Glasgow.


Research interests

My research interest has a strong commitment to early reading development  and special education learners, specifically children and adults with dyslexia. 

My work focuses on understanding the cognitive mechanisms associated with reading success and struggles. Buildign on this work I additionally explore potential evidence based intervention strategies and programs that may help support those who struggle to learn to read and write.  

 

I am currently working on a Carnegie Trust funded project titled: Good readers but poor spellers: Is morphological processing the key to understanding compensation in successful dyslexic adults? This work is being conducted in collaboration  with Dr Breadmore form Coventry University ,
