New Collaboration with LEAP

The LEARN Lab has received a grant from the NU School of Communication to partner with Chicago-based nonprofit LEAP (Language Empowers All People) to study the effects of LEAP’s “Beginning with Babble” mobile app on language development. We will be enrolling families with toddlers this summer in an 8-week trial to understand how the BWB app may promote language growth. LEAP is led by CSD department alumna Katie Gottfred. The BWB app was developed with funding from the US HRSA “Bridging the Word Gap Challenge.”
