The Language Grant

Funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Development.

This study examines communication foundation, maternal language quality, and child expressive language ability in Spanish-speaking Latino families that were a part of the early stages of the DPReP study. 

Our research team is currently working on transcribing and rating recorded parent-child interaction in order to assess the variables listed above. 

This project is being conducted in collaboration with our colleagues at the University of Texas at Dallas (Margaret Owen and Raul Rojas), Georgia State University (Lauren Adamson and Roger Bakeman), New York University (Cathie Tamis-LeMonda), and the University of Washington (Amy Pace).
