R&R-DLL Model: Development & Pilot Study

This project is adapting an existing R&R model for use with Latino dual language learners (DLLs) who are 4 years old and enrolled in center-based programs in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Primary project activities include developing the bilingual assessment and intervention components of R&R for use with DLL children; providing professional development and ongoing support to teachers who implement the R&R-DLL system in their classrooms; and conducting a pilot study using an experimental design to evaluate the implementation and preliminary efficacy of the model.
