Linguistic processing efficiency in children born preterm
Official Research Title: Predicting language processing efficiency in preterm children: Social-environmental and neuro-biological factors
Principal Investigator: Heidi Feldman, MD, PhD
Study Description: This prospective, longitudinal study follows primarily English- and Spanish-speaking children born preterm from birth to 18 months of age (corrected for prematurity) to explore the unique and overlapping contributions of social-environmental and neurobiological factors on the development of language processing efficiency, a skill with short- and long-term consequences for learning.
