The overarching goal of the Bridging the Word Gap Research Network is to reduce the number of children who enter school with delays in language and early literacy. The Network will galvanize efforts to close the Word Gap disparity by creating an interdisciplinary research network and working to increase the national capacity to conduct research on interventions that increase language and literacy development in young children.
