We are studying the way practice can affect the way children with delayed speech development move their lips and jaws to speak. We are looking for 5 to 6 year old children with impaired speech production skills for a total commitment of 5 hours over 3 sessions. They will receive a free speech, language, and hearing screening, and a gift card upon completion of the study.
Dr. Susannah Levi and the Acoustic Phonetics & Perception Lab at NYU are interested in finding out how people listen to voices and understand who is talking and also how this skill relates to language ability. If you would like to participate and if your child meets the qualifications for participation, your child will do several short tests that require them to listen to words or sounds and answer some questions about them.
