Children currently in kindergarten, with or without reading disabilities, with English as their first language.
This research studies brain development and reading in kindergarteners. There is an initial 15-minute screening session to determine eligibility for a longitudinal study, which will follow the child’s academic growth through the end of the first grade.
Call or email us to express interest, or complete our online screener. If eligible, we will then schedule a 30-minute screening visit to make sure your child is eligible for the longitudinal study.
Check for $50 after initial screening visit is completed.
One visit totaling 30 minutes. If eligible for longitudinal study, you will be contacted with more information.
