Tracking the Development of Language and Discourse Skills of ASL-competent Children

Dr. Kuntze will share the findings of his five-year longitudinal study on language and the discourse skills of ASLcompetent children. This study is driven by the hypothesis that future success with reading is based on children’s experience with a language that replicates some of the demands of literacy, even though they may be two different languages.
