Curriculum

Marinella Majorano is an Associate Professor of Developmental and Educational Psychology. Her research programme focuses on the role played by the family and by educational and cultural factors in the development of language and communication in typically developing children and in children with language and communication difficulties (i.e., children with DLD and with CIs) and explores how these factors impact on the child’s literacy development in the primary school. She is also interested in developing and implementing intervention programs for parents, educators and teachers that promote inclusion and well-being, with special attention to children acquiring Italian as a second language and children with disabilities. Two of her applied research projects were funded by educational services and she has received two grants. Her work is published in several national and international journals and she collaborates continuously with several international partners.
