Listening to faces speech study for children with speech sound disorders (Ages 7-10)
Does your child have difficulty with speech?
Join us in a study that aims to determine whether children with speech sound disorders perceive and process audiovisual speech differently than their typically developing peers. We are seeking children ages 7-10 to participate in this study.
Participants will watch movies of speaking faces and complete standard cognitive, language and social tasks.
Testing can be completed in one to two visits
Day, evening or weekend appointments are available
Parent will receive a research report on child’s language performance
All testing is noninvasive and includes eye-tracking and EEG
Children earn $10/hour for participation
Participants are reimbursed for parking and travel expenses
Videos of speaking human and computer-animated faces paired with a non-invasive method to track eye movements will be used to determine how affected children use a speaker’s face as part of their perceptual processing of speech. This study has important practical implications for the design of targeted interventiions for verbal and non-verbal children with developmental disabilities.
