We are currently actively recruiting children between 7-11 years old to participate in the PALM research study. See the official PALM flier.
We have received funding from the National Institutes of Health to collect a wealth of information about language development in children. The team at The University of Texas at Dallas, led by Dr. Julia Evans, is working with collaborators at two other universities to assemble a large-scale pediatric attention, language and memory database that will be available to the scientific community.
These data will allow investigators to examine the role of attention and memory on listening comprehension is children. Understanding why memory and attention interfere with children’s listening skills is critically important for solving many educational problems that children experience. The research will lead to more effective ways of educating children with and without learning disabilities.
