Introduction
I am currently working as a Researcher in the Early Learning Initiative at the National College of Ireland, an initiative addressing educational underachievement in marginalised communities.

Project
This project has two goals: - To follow up with previous graduates of the ParentChild+ (previously Parent Child Home Programme) and explore their current Home Learning Environment experiences, academic engagement, and development across cognitive, behavioural, and socio-emotional domains. - To map the children's educational journey and find out what, if any, other supports the children may need as they progress through the education system.
Project
The primary aim of this project is to explore whether infants from an area of socio-economic disadvantage (“SED”) differ in terms of certain early developmental outcomes, as compared to national norms. It is hypothesised that the SED infants will demonstrate reduced outcomes in this respect when compared to their national counterparts. A secondary aim of this project will be to explore whether an early intervention (“0-2 Years Programme”), delivered to the parents of the SED infants, succeeds in closing this disadvantage gap and brings the SED children’s development and wellbeing closer to national norms.
