Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the study?  

It’s a 4 year study; each child participates in an assessment and writing program in 6th grade, and a brief follow up assessment in 7th grade.

How often will you see my child?

If your child is eligible after an initial screening, we will administer a two-hour assessment in the fall, followed by instruction twice a week for 13 weeks during the spring semester.

How will I find out about the results of the study? 

Each family will receive a letter providing information about their child’s performance on the fall assessment. For confidentiality, the final results from the study will be reported about the group as a whole and will not include information about individual participants.
