About the Project

Our researchers bring expertise in the skills central to literacy development, such as oral language and culture, and in new, cutting-edge methodological approaches, including digital media, neuroimaging, and computational analysis. 

Our goal is to generate the scientific knowledge necessary to ensure full literacy – the deep text comprehension needed to succeed in our rapidly-evolving knowledge economy – in increasingly diverse workspaces and communities.
