GSU Research Studies of Children with Down Syndrome

Georgia State University is currently enrolling children with Down syndrome aged 5-11 years for its studies. Your child will come to the GSU lab ONCE to walk, jump, and climb stairs. The aim is to understand movement patterns in children with Down syndrome and hopefully use this information in the future to design effective intervention to improve their motor and cognitive function. The studies are observational, which is not invasive and does not use your child’s medical record. Participation will take about 2 hours of your child’s time.

  1. We have participated twice. It is very interesting to watch what they do. If you can’t do it this time, you can ask him to add you to his distribution list for future opportunities.
