 WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE NETWORK?

The Network brings together key experts from different sectors and backgrounds, to share and build on their experiences and ideas. They work together to achieve the following Network goals:

  • To support scientific research and knowledge that is focused on improving and sustaining children's language and literacy development;
  • To create a critical mass of highly qualified experts in Canada by contributing to the training and education of specialists in language and literacy development;
  • To facilitate the transfer of research based knowledge to educators, practitioners and all those who have a vested interest in the welfare of children.
 HOW ARE WE ACHIEVING THE GOALS?

The Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network will apply its resources to:

  • Invest in multidisciplinary projects and leverage the knowledge available across The Network;
  • Invest in Core Facilities, and develop and make available complex technologies that would not be cost-effective for individual investigators;
  • Provide funds to train students in the language and literacy field and create the next generation of child language and literacy experts;
  • Create linkages between the research, education, clinical and partner communities that will quickly translate findings into action;
  • Promote partnerships with industry, education and health advocacy groups, service delivery agencies, not-for-profit organizations and government.
