She initiated and led a European Cooperation in Science and Technology network (COST Action IS0804 – add link) that put the study of DLD among children of diverse linguistic backgrounds on the map and made it possible to identify markers of DLD that are valid crosslinguistically.
Dr. Carmit Altman is a psycholinguist in the Child Development and School Counseling programs at the School of Education at Bar-Ilan University. She is an expert in narrative development in bilingual and monolingual children and adults. Her research, funded by the Israel Science Foundation and the Ministry of Education, enables to recognize linguistic features that distinguish children with typical development and children with Developmental Language Disorder. Her synergetic relations enable joint collaborations with the Ministry of Education.

As a speech language pathologist and a young researcher she is constantly bridging between the academic world and the clinical world.

Our diverse expertise yields a holistic solution so all children can be assessed early in every language, and parents can support their language skills, leaving no child behind.
