Are Laureate programs research-based?
All Laureate programs are based on current linguistic, psycholinguistic, and instructional research. Our new Sterling Edition programs as well as The Sentence Master were developed with Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). The SBIR grant program is highly competitive. Reviewers and the supporting agencies demand rigorous evidence of the research bases of funded projects as well as demonstrations of software effectiveness.
