We have partnered with schools around the country to study the impact of educational enrichment on neural development and learning in children ages 8 to 18.
Enrichment in Under-Served Populations:
In conjunction with charter schools in the Chicago Public School system, we are undertaking a longitudinal study that investigates the impact of music and physical education on adolescent brain development. If you are interested in participating in this project, please call 847-491-2457.
The Harmony Project, winner of the nation’s top honor for an arts program targeting high-need youth, provides music-based mentoring programs for high-need youth attending schools in Los Angeles neighborhoods. We are collaborating with the Harmony project to study learning, communication abilities, and biological development in grade-school children in LA participating in the mentoring program.
Classroom assistive listening devices
Our joint project with the Hyde Park Day Schools in Chicago (private institutions for children with reading impairments) strives to identify the effects of classroom assistive listening devices on reading and communication abilities and their neural correlates in children with reading difficulties.
