Children currently in kindergarten, with or without reading disabilities and English as their first language.
This research studies brain development and reading in kindergartners. There is an initial 15-minute screening test session to determine eligibility for a longitudinal study, which follows a child’s academic growth through the end of the first grade.
We ask parents to:
Call or email us to express interest, or complete the online screener at https://redcap.vanderbilt.edu/surveys/?s=TM8JCATHJK. If eligible, we will then schedule a 30-minute screening visit to make sure your child is eligible for the longitudinal study.
A check for $50 after the initial screening visit is completed.
One visit totaling 30 minutes. If eligible for the longitudinal study, you will be contacted with more information.
