Does your child have a hard time figuring out what to say? Do they struggle to follow directions at home or in the classroom?

Principal Investigator: Reyna L. Gordon, Ph.D.


We are interested in learning more about children who struggle with language, and how their language skills might be related to their other thinking and listening skills, such as their timing abilities. Children who qualify will be asked to come to the Vanderbilt campus where the research team will assess their thinking, speaking, and timing abilities.
