Personal profile

Biography

Andrew J. Holliman, Ph.D., is a chartered psychologist (CPsychol.), an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS.), a senior fellow of the higher education academy (SFHEA), and a Senior Lecturer in Developmental Psychology at Coventry University, UK. He is generally interested in children’s learning and development. His research focus is the development of children’s reading and phonological awareness and the role of speech rhythm (or prosodic) sensitivity in this development. He also works in collaboration with the Institute of Education, University of London, on research relating to the Reading Recovery programme.

Andrew has presented his research at a number of prestigious conference meetings including the Society for the Scientific Study of Reading, the British Dyslexia Association, the European Conference on Developmental Psychology, and the British Psychological Society Developmental Section. He also accepted an invitation to present his research at a seminar on Linguistic Rhythm and Literacy at Harvard University, USA. He has edited a recently published text (The Routledge International Companion to Educational Psychology) and is currently co-editing another with Professor Kieron Sheehy on Education and New Technologies: Perils and Promises for Learners.

Vision Statement

Inspired by a general interest in identifying and meeting the needs of children with learning difficulties, Dr Holliman’s research principally aims to: a) help identify young children who have, or may go on to have, reading difficulties, with a special focus on their sensitivity to speech rhythm; and b) to help identify the most effective ways to remediate these difficulties, with a special focus on exploring the potential of a speech rhythm-based reading intervention programme.
