BIO: Trelani’s dissertation work focuses on preschool children’s invented spelling ability as an important indicator of emergent literacy development. In this talk, she will identify the foundational literacy skills that predict young children’s name writing and word spelling ability and how the differences in these suggests the early emergence of a dual-route model of spelling.  Trelani’s thesis supervisor is Dr. Luigi Girolametto.
