Igualada Perez, Alfonso

Dr Alfonso Igualada focuses his research on the study of the development, assessment and treatment of language and communication in children with and without pathology. An area of particular interest is the study of using communicative gestures and pragmatic skills in children with language disorders, associated or otherwise with other pathologies, such as autism spectrum disorder.

Within this subject area, the aim of his research is to study how gestural and pragmatic skills relate with language mechanisms in situations of standard and pathological development; to look in depth at knowledge of the diagnosis and assessment of these populations with physical systems and ICT; and to study the effectiveness of treatments in the area of speech therapy, with special interest on socio-pragmatic-type treatments
