Child Language and Literacy Lab (CLL Lab)
In the Child Language and Literacy (CLL) Lab we investigate children’s development of language and literacy, especially in young children from under-resourced neighborhoods who speak nonmainstream English dialects. Areas of focus include culturally and linguistically responsive assessment methods, innovations in language sample analysis, and professional development for early childhood educators. Since the CLL Lab began in 2003 we have been funded by numerous external and internal grants. Funders have included the U.S. Department of Education, Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin, Herzfeld Foundation, Greater Milwaukee Foundation, United Way, and Marquette University.
