A focus of the meeting will be on framing research to support continuous quality improvement and program implementation strategies that enhance the learning of children who are DLLs. NC ECDTL will develop several resources for the Head Start community as a result of this meeting, including factsheets to highlight connections between research and practice and a microlearning course on the latest research.
