The Center for Research and Training (CRT) at The Learning Center for the Deaf actively supports culturally and linguistically accessible education for deaf and hard of hearing students by consulting with schools, districts, and states on effective dual language instructional practices in ASL and English. CRT develops STEM-specific educational resources in ASL, consults on bilingual K-12 instruction, and administers bilingual assessments for students ages 4-18. Our Deaf and ASL-fluent experts provide customized services to schools, programs, districts, and state educational agencies in order to enhance their capacity for rigorous, student-centered instruction and assessment in American Sign Language and written English. We participate in partnerships with researchers and educators to develop and implement research-based tools and strategies to advance bilingual instruction and assessment.
