Child Language Research Laboratory
Welcome to the Child Language Lab!
Welcome to the Child Language Lab at Purdue University! We study the language development of children 4-1/2 to 6 years of age. Our goal is to understand why some children have difficulty learning language, and to discover ways to help them learn language more successfully.

Every summer, we conduct a special program for children with Language Impairment, in collaboration with SLHS clinical staff. Children in the program participate in both research and language therapy activities in a preschool setting. Learn more about “Summer Fun”, the assessments we offer, and other services provided by our lab: For Parents, Clinicians, and Teachers: What We Offer
We also see children throughout the year, in our laboratory in Lyles-Porter Hall at Purdue University as well as in surrounding sites. We see children with Language Impairment and children with typically developing language for a variety of studies, of varying type and length.
