Haskins Laboratories was founded in 1935 by the late Dr. Caryl P. Haskins. The Laboratories’ primary research focus is on the science of the spoken and written word, including inter-disciplinary neurocognitive research, theoretical development, and technological advances leading to insights in understanding the brain’s role in speech, language, and reading problems and their treatment. This independent research institute has been in New Haven, Connecticut since 1970 when it formalized affiliations with Yale University and the University of Connecticut, and has extensive national and international research partnerships.
