"We are well on our way to fulfilling our larger research objectives"
- Characterize the relationship between language abilities and brain structure in early childhood (2-7 years).
- Examine relationships between trajectories of structural brain development from 2-7 years and reading readiness at age 5-7 years.
We hope that our study will provide a sketch of the early years of normal brain development. This will pave the way for optimizing and delivering interventions for children with language delays or early reading problems.
