Language Development Project at the University of Chicago

Have you ever wondered how children learn language? 

Do all children learn language in the same way? How do children communicate before they speak?

Your family can help us answer these questions and many more by being a part of the Language Development Project. We are currently seeking families with children between the ages of 8 and 36 months to participate in our study. Specifically, we are looking for children with unilateral brain injury that live within a 100 mile radius of the Chicago Area.

In order to help us understand how children learn and use language, we will visit children in their homes three times per year for approximately two hours at each visit. Families will receive $50 per home visit for participating in the study. If children are in daycare or preschool, we will also visit them there one time per year.

If you are interested in finding out about the Language Development Project, please contact Dr. Susan Levine at the University of Chicago by phone at (773) 834-9914 or by email at
