We are a clinical practice research lab that supports both families and current/future practitioners who struggle with navigating multiple systems in service of helping children with language and literacy disorders. We seek to provide them with the necessary knowledge, skills, and support to improve language and literacy development for all children.
Unlike traditional research methods, we engage with all relevant stakeholders throughout the entire research process. This includes caregivers, people with communication disorders, speech language pathologists, educators, school administrators, community members, policy makers, and others. We recognize that local contextual factors must be considered for successful and sustainable outcomes.
