Get Involved

Research

We are actively recruiting participants for the following studies:

  • SLPs and other professionals who work with bilingual individuals who communicate with AAC
  • Spanish/English bilingual children ages 4-6 for a study about language choice and code-switching: Español e ingles a la vez
  • Spanish-speaking families and students for our Supporting Families Raising Bilingual Children project
  • To learn more and sign up: https://blogs.umass.edu/bld/what-we-do/

We, along with researchers across the globe, are working hard on finding answers to relevant questions about bilingual language development. We have lots of resources available on this topic, but investigations are ongoing, and there is a lot more for us to discover! If there is a question you cannot find the answer to, we would love to hear about it.

Become a Speech-Language Pathologist

If our work seems intriguing or compelling to you, consider building a career as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). Communities all over the world are in need of SLPs from varied backgrounds who are knowledgeable about multilingualism. SLPs work in school systems, medical settings, academia, and community programs to evaluate, treat, and support people with communication disorders.
