Dr. Julie Washington
Dr. Julie Washington is a Professor in the School of Education at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Dr. Washington directs the Learning Disabilities Research Innovation Hub and is Director of the Dialect, Poverty and Academic Success lab at UCI.
Currently, Dr. Washington’s research is focused on the intersection of literacy, language variation, and poverty. In particular, her work focuses on understanding the role of cultural dialect in assessment, identification of reading disabilities in school-aged African American children and on disentangling the relationship between language production and comprehension on development of reading and early language skills for children growing up in poverty.
