Researchers at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Georgia State University want to learn how to help children who had a head injury.
We'd like to better understand how reading skills may be affected in children who had a head injury, compared to children who had a broken bone.
Who is eligible?
Contact us to volunteer your family for the study if:
Your child had a head injury or a broken bone at or before the age of 5
- Your child is now 6-10 years old
What does the study involve?
- Your child will receive language and reading testing.
- Researchers will see him once a year for three years at a Children's facility that is most convenient for you.
- We offer flexible scheduling.
What are the benefits to me and my family?
- This study is free to families. To say thank you, families will be compensated for their time and participation.
- Researchers monitor your child throughout the study and give proper support and direction.
- Parents can discuss any concerns with staff.
