The Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy at Georgia College is offering grants to University System of Georgia Institutions and State Agencies.
The aim of the Deal Center’s research agenda is to understand the conditions and processes
needed to successfully implement and sustain evidence-based and evidence-informed practices
in early language and literacy development in organizations working with children and families
from birth through age 8.
Utilizing implementation science principles, grantees are expected to design and implement a
research study that examines the practices that foster early language and literacy with an
understanding of developmental and contextual differences in a manner that allows community
organizations, the education sector, and children to safely realize the benefits of early language
and literacy and sustain these benefits during and post-pandemic. The aim of using
implementation science in this manner is to understand how evidence-based practices in early
language and literacy development are adapted to the demands of society amidst a pandemic
