Power of the Point: Predictors of Early Language Development in Down Syndrome

What Are We Studying?

We are recruiting mothers and their 18-to-24-month-olds with Down syndrome for a research study on what skills support early language development.

What Will We Do?

  • Toddlers and their mothers will be asked to play with toys, complete an assessment of language & cognitive abilities, & complete questionnaires 3 times over a 1-year period.
  • This will take 1.5-2 hours
  • Due to COVID-19, all visits will be virtual via a secure Zoom meeting.

Are There Any Benefits?

You and your child will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card for each visit.

This study will contribute to the greater understanding of early language development in children with Down syndrome.
