Bridging the Word Gap Research Network

Bridging the Word Gap-Intervention Research Network

The network seeks to build on the work of individuals from diverse disciplines across the country and carry out the following objectives: Develop an interdisciplinary research network to develop and test interventions; create a national research agenda to advance the science of early language intervention; design a multi-level pilot intervention study to kick-start this work; create a practice-based research collaborative; disseminate critical information and foster continued education activities; improve national capacity to carry out this intervention research through development of a data infrastructure and syntheses of measures, designs, and analytic approaches; expand the pipeline of scientists focused on Word Gap research by creating mentorship and other training opportunities for new investigators.
