Acquiring Literacy in English was one component of a larger research initiative, Development of Literacy in Spanish Speakers (DeLSS), that was jointly organized and funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the Department of Education. The development of these assessments was supported by Grant No. 5-P01-HD39530 from NICHD and IES.

A process for making some of these assessment instruments available to qualified researchers is being developed. Watch this web page for updates.
