Giving children a voice: Cincinnati Children’s enrolling for language intervention study

The Language Intervention Study at Cincinnati Children’s is helping children greatly improve their speech and language skills.

The trial is the first of its kind in the country for kids ranging in age from five to 12 years old.

In addition to 24 weeks of free speech and language therapy, the kids are given a free iPad as part of the study. Then using a special language app, the children are taught to see a word, say a word, and use it properly in a sentence.
