As the United Stated becomes increasingly multilingual, there is an increasing need for least-biased assessment procedures appropriate for all language groups within the United States. The National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIH) has awarded a 6-year, $3.44 million contract to develop a language assessment protocol to be used with 4– to 6-year-old Latino children. The contract, “Development and Standardization of a Language Test for Children Speaking Non-Standard English: A Study of Bilingual Hispanic Children,” will be carried out by three teams of researchers. The teams will be headed by Aquiles Iglesias (Temple University), Elizabeth Pena (University of Texas at Austin), and Vera Gutierrez-Clellen (San Diego State University). Brian Goldstein (Temple University) and Barbara Davis (University of Texas at Austin) will also participate.
