Dr. Barzillai’s research focuses on reading development and remediation across different media. Her research has explored the importance of semantic flexibility for the development of reading skill as well as the influence of different media on aspects of ‘deep reading’ among young readers. She worked at the Center for Applied Special Technologies, where she helped develop an internet-based reading program to support shared reading and was the director of content in the Global Literacy project, in which she was involved in the creation of new tablet-based technology to teach English language and literacy to children around the world who have no access to teachers or schools
She is currently examining the efficacy of a digital reading intervention on the reading development of children across different age groups and impairment levels.
