UW-Madison's Vlach, Lupyan receive NIH grant to study effects of early language experiences

UW-Madison’s Gary Lupyan and Haley Vlach recently received funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct an innovative and interdisciplinary research project that will examine key questions of how early language experience shapes later cognitive and academic outcomes. As part of the grant, the team will develop an app to help parents track their children's language development. Vlach is an assistant professor with the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Educational Psychology and Lupyan is an associate professor with the Department of Psychology.
