About Us

Vanderbilt KidTalk is a research group studying language growth in young children with disabilities. Our intervention is fun, natural and can be done by parents and teachers!

Children who are taught using KidTalk procedures typically learn new vocabulary, talk in longer sentences, and develop strong, positive relationships with their parents, teachers and peers.

We currently have four major studies, but only three of which are currently seeking participants. Please click on the “CURRENT PROJECTS” tab above to find out more!
