How do children between the ages of 3 and 12 learn new words? That is one question NIU speech-language pathology Assistant Professor Allison Gladfelter is looking to answer with her current research study. Gladfelter is seeking participants for her research study exploring how children with and without autism learn to say new words.
Children between the ages of 3 and 12, with or without autism, qualify. Participants will be scheduled for two or three sessions each lasting approximately one hour at NIU’s Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic, HUSKIES Lab, 3100 Sycamore Road, DeKalb. It is possible to schedule all the sessions for the same day. Families will be compensated $10 an hour and the children get to pick out toys as prizes. Gladfelter will also provide families a report of their child’s hearing, speech and language standardized testing scores.
