Temporary Assessment of Language in Kabuki Syndrome (TALK) Study

Speech and language development is a complex, multifactorial process driven by the individual’s ability to process and formulate communication. These processes can be interrupted in neurodevelopmental conditions. Redenlab are partnering with Boston Children’s Hospital on the Temporary Assessment of Language in Kabuki syndrome (TALK) study.

The TALK study is exploring speech and language patterns in individuals with Kabuki syndrome through a collaboration between the Roya Kabuki Program at Boston Children’s Hospital and Redenlab.

Prof Olaf Bodamer (Boston) and Profs Adam Vogel and Angela Morgan (Melbourne) are driving the study design and analysis with the aim of refining clinical trial outcome measures for clinical care and future trials.

Boston Children’s Hospital established a Kabuki Syndrome Program in 2017 to integrate the care, management, and treatment of children and adults with Kabuki syndrome and to conduct research aimed at identifying targeted therapies.
