Stefka H. Marinova-Todd, Ed.D

Dr. Marinova-Todd is an Associate Professor at the UBC’s School of Audiology and Speech Sciences. The main goals of her research program are to establish what bilingual children can do in each one of their languages, and how bilingualism affects their cognitive and academic performance. More recently, she has been studying bilingual children with autism and her research has consistently shown that children with autism are capable of being successful bilinguals and are equivalent to monolingual counterparts in language and metalinguistic abilities. She was an associate editor at Applied Psycholinguistics and Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools.
