Our work helps children learn the words and sounds of the language so that they can succeed in school and life. Keep reading to learn more about our currently available studies.
We invite you to sign up for a quick online language screening session at bit.ly/kuscreening. During the session we’ll ask your child to answer questions and repeat words. We’ll also tell you how your child scored compared to other children his or her age. If your child’s scores suggest that further language testing might be needed, we’ll talk to you about options for more testing, including signing up for our vocabulary learning study. Benefits of signing up for a short screening session include:
- A quick check of your child’s language development
- A list of ideas to help encourage language development at home
- Option to enroll in a paid vocabulary enrichment study (if further testing is indicated)
Are you concerned about your child’s language skills? We’re currently recruiting kindergarten-eligible children for a project on vocabulary learning (KAW Story). Benefits of participating include:
- A free report which may be useful in educational and clinical planning
- Improving your child’s vocabulary because he/she may learn some of the 30 words taught
- Payment for your child’s time in helping us test the program
