NIH awards grant for language development research The University of Chicago Chronicle, Jun 12, 2008 By Harms, William

Abstract: The National Institutes of Health has awarded the University a $7.7 million, five-year grant to study the development of language among children, in order to better understand how early, preschool development relates to learning how to read. This study will build on a longitudinal study of 60 children from a diverse set of families who already have participated in an NIH study to examine how they develop language in the home. The researchers also are studying 40 children with brain injuries, who will be followed as they enter school.
