Dr. Alt's Late Talkers Research and Best Practices

By treynolds@fcrr.org

Dr. Mary Alt (University of Arizona) has recently been awarded a research supplement through the NIH Tackling Acquisition of Language in Kids (TALK) Initiative, related to her ongoing NIH R01 grant Identification of treatment parameters that maximize language treatment efficacy for children. Through this supplement Dr. Alt plans to not only share her data on LDbase, but to also create best practice guidance for data sharing related to late talkers and early language acquisition, identifying LDbase as the best fitting data repository for these types of projects and data. Congratulations, Dr. Alt!
