The mission of the Word and Sound Learning lab at the University of Kansas is to help preschool-Kindergarten children learn the words and sounds of the language so that they can be academically successful.

Are you concerned about your child’s language skills? We’re currently recruiting kindergarten-eligible children for a project on vocabulary learning. 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 

  • $25-$75 for your child’s time in helping us test the program
