The ED3 Project


The ED3 Project through The University of Texas at Austin (lead) and The Ohio State University (subaward) is a remote, NIH-funded study that seeks to determine the amount of speech-language intervention children need to make improvements.

This study will help us better understand how to provide intervention for children that need help learning new vocabulary. We hope to identify the optimal amount of intervention needed as well as the point at which adding more intervention is no longer beneficial. We are currently recruiting children ages 5- to 8-years old, anywhere in the United States that have been diagnosed with a developmental language disorder. Recruitment is ongoing and families can join at any time.
