Dr. Rebecca Treiman
Dr. Rebecca Treiman has B.A. in linguistics (Yale University, 1976) and a Ph.D. in psychology (University of Pennsylvania, 1980). Treiman’s research examines children’s spelling and the reasons behind their errors. Other studies look at the skills and knowledge that children bring to the learning of literacy, including phonological awareness and knowledge about letters. This research involves typically developing children, children with dyslexia, and deaf children; it includes those learning to read and write in English as well as those learning other languages, including Chinese and Portuguese. Other lines of research look at the processes involved in reading and spelling in adults and at the nature of spelling-sound relationships in English and other languages. Treiman also teaches courses on developmental psychology, psychology of language, and language acquisition, and advises students who are studying these topics.
