Vanderbilt KidTalk is a research group studying language growth in young children with disabilities. Our intervention is fun, natural and can be done by parents and teachers!

Children who are taught using KidTalk procedures typically learn new vocabulary, talk in longer sentences, and develop strong, positive relationships with their parents, teachers and peers.

Vanderbilt KidTalk

KidTalk has a supportive and encouraging staff of psychologists, speech language pathologists, special educators, and counseling professionals who provide language intervention to young children with a range of disabilities. With more than 50 research studies supporting our naturalistic, conversation-based language intervention, children who participate in KidTalk typically learn new vocabulary, talk in longer sentences, and develop strong, positive relationships with their parents, teachers and peers. Many of our studies also include a component of parent training where we teach parents ways they can support their child’s language development. Check out our website for videos, testimonies, and more information about our current projects!
