About Janine Just
Between February 2013 and August 2014, I worked as a Research Assistant on the UK-CDI Project, a collaborative research project between the Universities of Lancaster, Liverpool and Lincoln, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The aim of the UK-CDI is to establish the first language norms for UK children between 8 and 18 months.
I received a fully-funded PhD studentship from the University of Lincoln in September 2014. The PhD project assesses if the UK-CDI questionnaire can be used for early identification of developmental language delay. It will be investigated longitudinally if UK-CDI scores at 12, 18 and 24 can predict language outcomes at 36 months and if factors such as gender and maternal education are predictors for future language ability. My supervisors are Prof Kerstin Meints, Dr John Slack (University of Lincoln) and Prof Caroline Rowland (University of Liverpool).
