On the invitation of our lab, our Chinese collaborator Prof. Yifang Wang from Capital Normal University, Beijing, China, visited our lab on February 21st.
Prof. Wang has been researching for more than twenty years the social and emotional development of Chinese children. Like our lab, her research interests cover not only typically developing children but also children with communication difficulties, such as children with a hearing loss. Remarkably, Prof. Wang is also the head of an excellent Chinese kindergarten, which hosts more than 400 children. During her visit, Prof. Wang showed her genuine care for the wellbeing of children and how she translates research outcomes into teaching practice. With the joint force of our lab and the team of Prof. Wang, we hope to make contributions to the understanding of the development of children from both the Western and Eastern world.
