Language and Literacy Research Study

Help Us Learn More about Head Injuries and Reading Skills
Rehab research study

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:

  • Join the Study

    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.
