FCRR: Early Development & Risk Study- A Ready Research Study

Do you wonder about all the people and experiences that will help your toddler be ready to learn to read at age 5? Join with other parents and a group of researchers at the Florida Center for Reading Research at Florida State University to answer these questions now! Be a part of a new study designed to uncover the secrets of children’s early language and literacy success by following their development across multiple years.  This study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, will investigate child, family, school and community influences on school readiness and early literacy for families from diverse backgrounds. Findings also will help with earlier identification of children with developmental challenges. To support this work: if you have a child ages 18-25 months old, fill out a brief survey and earn $10.
