Brief Biography
My research focuses on heritage language maintenance and bilingualism in minority-language families of children with communication disabilities, in particular, children on the autism spectrum. I am interested in understanding bilingual communication between parents and their children with autism as an interactional achievement not only defined by the management of two or more linguistic codes, but also by the coordination of sociocultural meaning within family routines. I am also interested in understanding how those parent-child interactions are shaped by the broader discourses and practices within family-school relationships.
