Napoleon brings to the project expertise in language acquisition research, especially in how typically- and atypically-developing children learn two languages (or two dialects) simultaneously. His current projects in this area focus on exploring bilingualism in autism and/or ADHD through clinical and sub-clinical population studies and systematic reviews. He is also studying the differences between bilingual and bi-dialectal development. A better understanding of the process of bilingualism is of paramount importance to families, professionals and the society at large. Together with colleagues in Cambridge, Napoleon co-founded the Cambridge Bilingualism Network which aims to increase awareness about the benefits and challenges of raising bilingual children by disseminating state-of-heart research findings and by fostering partnerships between researchers, teachers, clinicians and parents of bilingual children.
