Dr. Erbeli’s research focuses on understanding children’s and adolescents’ reading abilities and disabilities. Her research program consists of three interrelated foci: reading development, predictive factors of reading achievement, and individual differences in reading abilities and disabilities. Through the integration of these foci, the central goals of her work are to identify educationally relevant cognitive, developmental, genetic, and environmental (risk) factors involved in learning reading and to predict and identify children and adolescents who might be at-risk for reading disabilities.

Research topics:

(1) reading development, (2) predictive factors of reading achievement, and (3) individual differences in reading abilities and disabilities
