Dr. Scott Hall – Stanford University – Fragile X with LD Control Group Study
The DT Trainer has recently been used in a research study involving children with Fragile X Syndrome,
a rare genetic disorder that is associated with autism. Children with this disorder often have difficulties learning math.
There was also a control group with other intellectual disabilities. Dr. Scott Hall, Assistant Professor at Stanford University,
showed that the DT Trainer could also help children with fragile X learn new math concepts. The study was funded, in part, by the
National Fragile X Foundation and a brief report of the findings have been published in the March 2011 edition of the National Fragile
X Foundation Quarterly. The full report has been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, and hopefully will be
published later in the year. We will keep you posted.
AES thanks the National Fragile X Foundation for supporting Dr. Hall’s research and giving us permission to post the research report from their newsletter.
