Join All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge (ACR GCD) for Development, Josh Josa, disability inclusive education portfolio lead at USAID, and Kristina Solum, senior director of literacy and learning at School-to-School International, to learn about the adaptation, language subtasks development, and administration of the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) to enable assessment of sign language users.
