Are you looking for better ways to understand the language and early literacy skills of Dual Language Learners in your classrooms so you can better support their development in both languages?

We’re partnering with preschool sites to co-develop tools for assessing language and early literacy skills. We’re looking for classroom partners to help shape the tools, recruit students to participate in collaborative research, provide feedback and insight about the assessments, and help us build tools for teachers. Partners will benefit from classroom strategies for building a roadmap to support Dual Language Learners through assessment and intervention.
