Language Development in Preterm Children
This research investigates the ways in which preterm birth affects how very young children learn to speak and understand language, and how older children gain efficiency in language processing. The investigators observe how children at different ages learn new words and comprehend familiar words, how they communicate effectively with others, and how they use both linguistic and non-linguistic skills in problem-solving. All of the activities in the investigators' studies are designed to be age-appropriate and fun for children.
