BiLL Lab Mission

To develop best practices for the assessment and intervention of bilingual children and Spanish-speaking children at risk of language and academic difficulties. Specifically, we aim to:

    • Develop language interventions in the children’s native language and English as second language
    • Improve literacy outcomes in all the languages children speak
    • Determine identifiers of language disorders in bilingual and Spanish-speaking children
    • Differentiate language difference from language disorders in at risk children
    • Train preschool personnel to optimize language development in Dual language learners
