Children will participate in standardized language assessments, audiotaped play-based conversations, and storytelling. We will tell parents what we have learned about their child's speech and language skills.
This is a study of complex language development in children with typical language skills. We are interested in how children express multiple ideas within one sentence (e.g., I think he likes cookies; Mary went home because the party was over).
We will document your child's language skills at over two visits. Each visit will take about 1 hour. Visits can take place at in the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center, the child’s home, or at the child’s preschool (with their permission).
Typically developing children from 2 ½ years to 5 years of age
