BPsych (Hons)

Abbey joined the Telethon Kids Institute in February 2020 as a research assistant in the Language in Little Ones (LiLO) study. In her role she began conducting data collection for the 5-year longitudinal study and providing support to the study coordinator.

In addition to her continued communication with families, Abbey also contributes to the analysis for the Electronic Use in Little Ones (EUiLO) study, utilising data collected from LiLO participants and investigating the effects of screen exposure on developmental outcomes in preschool children.

Abbey completed her Honours in Psychology at the University of South Australia in 2018, where she worked with primary school aged children investigating the relationship between sleeping habits and cognitive functions.

She has always been particularly interested in working with children in a capacity that contributes to the improvement of their overall health, development, and wellbeing outcomes.
