Study of Development of Children with NF1
The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Dept. of Psychology (Bonnie Klein-Tasman, Ph.D.) is collaborating with the University of Chicago NF Program and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin NF Clinic to learn about the cognitive, learning, and behavioral functioning of young children with NF1. They are looking at the functioning of 3 to 6-year-olds with NF1 as well as their siblings without NF1. First language must be English. Participation takes up to 4 hours. The researcher will play games with the child to look at reasoning, expressive and receptive language abilities, patience, and reactions to mild frustration. The research takes place at the Child Neurodevelopment Research Lab at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. For more information please contact the Child Neurodevelopment Research Lab at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee at (414) 229-2586. Ask for Christy or Natalie.
