Every day, our investigators conduct research that has the potential to change people’s lives. Often we seek volunteers for those research programs. Some children and adults who volunteer may have specific conditions, while others volunteer to serve as controls, or people who don’t have those conditions. We seek a variety of participants across age, gender, disability, race and other criteria. 

We are so grateful to have families share their experiences, time, and knowledge with us. Explore studies that are recruiting volunteers below.

KAWSTORY (Kindergarten Children Acquiring Words through STORYbook Reading)

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
