About the Author

    ANNE VAN KLEECK, PhD, is a professor and Callier Research Scholar in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas, where she teaches and conducts research at the Callier Center for Communication Disorders and is a faculty affiliate in the Center for Children and Families. Her research focuses on language and emerging literacy skills in preschoolers and kindergartners who are at risk academically due to general language impairments or due to more specific weaknesses with academic language only. In recent publications, she has proposed that a preschool academic talk (AT) register provides a critical foundation for later reading comprehension/academic achievement, and hence is a pivotal readiness skill to address in our attempts to close academic achievement gaps. Her current work focuses on (a) determining how educated parents socialize AT use in everyday routine event interactions, (b) assessing children’s skill with AT as distinct from everyday casual talk, and (c) developing interventions with parents and preschool teachers as a means of fostering AT skills in preschoolers. Dr. van Kleeck’s publications include several edited books, over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles, and 25 book chapters. She has given 250 presentations nationally and internationally.
