Opening a Window Into the Minds of Language-Impaired Children

Scientific American, 3.27.17

At his Midtown Manhattan office Richard Schwartz uses eye-tracking sensors and software from Sweden-based company Tobii to study the impact of SLI on children’s language and speech. “It’s a very underserved population in some ways,” says Schwartz, a professor of speech, language and hearing sciences at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. “A lot of these kids get services to help them early in school but at a certain point they get lost because they may end up having reading problems or other learning disabilities, and people stop working on their language per se.”
