Amy Bidgood

Amy Bidgood is currently a Research Associate in the ESRC-funded International Centre for Language and Communicative Development (LuCiD) at the University of Liverpool. She works on the Language 0-5 Project, a longitudinal study investigating individual differences in the language development of 80 children from the age of six months to four and a half years. She focuses on the naturalistic data aspects of the project, looking at children's prelinguistic gesture use and their symbolic play abilities, amongst other things. Previously, she has worked on children's syntax development and on phonological development.
