Overview

EL2 develops and distributes toolkits to measure young deaf children’s language and cognitive development. We engage in classroom and home-based studies focusing on the factors that contribute to the development of literacy in deaf children. We also develop, validate, and distribute new assessments that measure children’s language and cognitive development.

We serve as the nexus for providing strong infrastructure support to the research community in the areas of ASL assessment, data sharing, and research volunteer recruitment.
