  • Dr Ingrid Willenberg

    As a Fulbright scholar I completed my doctorate in the Human Development and Psychology program with a concentration in Language and Literacy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education with Professor Catherine Snow, world-renowned expert in child language. My dissertation research, funded by a Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship, involved an in-depth mixed methods study of 100 South African children in kindergarten, exploring their language and emergent literacy skills as well as their home and school literacy environments. My research background is in social science and my experience falls under the umbrella of child development and well-being, with particular expertise in language and literacy development. My research experience includes studies on children's perspectives on their wellbeing, children's knowledge about and attitudes towards children's rights, and development of children's narrative abilities. My research is underpinned by a strong academic background in developmental psychology, linguistics, language and literacy, and speech-language pathology.
