Welcome to the Children’s Speech Development Research Project!

Our research aim is to collect and analyze data on the accuracy levels of children’s speech production in long, complex words. We are looking for school-aged children to help us find out how well they can say long words.

Children in Kindergarten up to Grade 6 can participate virtually through Zoom.

Participants will do five speech activities and will look at pictures for most of them. The activities will take approximately 45 minutes.

The research information will help speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to give better assessments and therapy for children with speech, reading and writing problems.
