The LEARN Lab at Northwestern University

You and your child are invited to

participate in a research study

about reading!!

The LEARN Lab (http://learnlab.northwestern.edu ) is conducting a
research study on understanding the brain basis of letter-sound
integration and its relation to reading skills in children.

Is your child:

        Between 7 and 11 years old

         Speaking English as their primary language at home (and exposed to English before age 1)

How To Participate:

        You and your child would come to Northwestern University in Evanston for about 2 hours of reading assessment activities.

        Your child may also be invited for an EEG brainwave measure (about 1.5 hours) after completing the reading assessment.

EEG is a child-friendly and non-invasive way of measuring the brain. EEG is safe and

uses no radiation. We will record the EEG brainwaves while your child listens to speech sounds, reads some letters, or watches a movie.

        These visits can be scheduled at your convenience, on weekdays, weekends, or holidays.

        You and your child will be compensated with a $25 gift card per visit for your participation.

We look forward to working with you!
