Haskins Laboratories

The Science of the Spoken and Written Word


Our Mission. Haskins Laboratories is an independent, international, multidisciplinary community of researchers conducting basic research on spoken and written language. Exchanging ideas, fostering collaborations, and forging partnerships across the sciences, it produces groundbreaking research that enhances our understanding of—and reveals ways to improve or remediate—speech perception and production, reading and reading disabilities, and human communication.

Haskins Laboratories has long-standing, formal affiliations with the University of Connecticut and Yale University. We also have collaborations and partnerships, both formal and informal, with other institutions and groups around the world.

Featured: Haskins Global L2 (language and Literacy) Innovation Hub

An outgrowth of the Haskins Global Summit is the Haskins Global L² (Language & Literacy) Innovation Hub, an international and interdisciplinary collaborative that brings together an unprecedented partnership of over 20 teams of expert researchers, practitioners, educators, and education technology specialists representing 5 continents, to solve one of the most critical issues preventing people from escaping poverty, leading healthy, productive lives, and achieving their full potential.
