Thank you for your interest in the HABLA Lab! We are the Human Abilities in Bilingual Language Acquisition (HABLA) Laboratory at the the School of Education at the University of California, Irvine and the Communication Sciences and Disorders at Temple University. The HABLA lab was started in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Texas, Austin by Elizabeth Peña and Lisa Bedore.
Our research focuses on understanding how bilingual individuals organize and access their two language systems. Ultimately, the goal of this inquiry is to better understand the nature of language breakdowns associated to language impairment.
