Developing Language and Literacy Lab

Welcome to the Developing Language and Literacy Lab (DLL Lab)! The DLL Lab researches the language and literacy development of young children from diverse backgrounds, with an emphasis on bilingual or dual language learners (DLLs).  Numerous projects are occurring in the lab that:

  • investigate cultural and environmental influences on children’s development,
  • develop assessment instruments of DLLs’ language and literacy skills, and
  • develop and evaluate home- and classroom- based interventions.
