The Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association has teamed with Dr. Susan Levine at the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago to recruit participants for a Language Development Project. Research study information from the program is below.
Have you ever wondered how children who have had a perinatal stroke use language to think and learn? Do all children with brain injury learn and use language in the same way? What are the best ways to help children with unilateral brain injury excel at these skills?
Your family can help us answer these questions and many more by being a part of the Language Development Project. We are currently seeking families with children between the ages of 9 and 12 years old to participate in our study. Specifically, we are looking for children with unilateral brain injury from early stroke.
In order to help us understand how children use language to think and learn, we will visit children in their homes one to two times yearly for approximately two hours at each visit. Families will receive $60 per home visit for participating in the study.
