The Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Language and Literacy’s (CISLL) mission is to support research about understanding the processes involved in language and literacy skills in order to enhance quality of life at home, at work, and in the community.

CISLL's expertise includes research about:

  • The development of language and literacy skills across the lifespan.
  • Literacy skills for changing technologies and communications.
  • How people teach, learn, understand and produce spoken and written language.
  • Understanding why some individuals struggle in these domains, and how to help.
  • How these processes and activities can be optimized for all individuals.
