Hélène Deacon

Co-Lead of Literacy / Governance: Executive Committee Member

Dalhousie University

Hélène Deacon is interested in understanding how children learn to read, specifically how they use their oral language skills to support the transition to skilled reading. Her research is conducted both here in Canada, and with collaborators around the world. As a part of the Partnership Grant team, she is expanding her research to the skills that children need to read in online contexts. She is looking forward to her role as co-director and co-lead for literacy on the SSHRC PG.
