Preschool Attention Study

As of December 2021, the Preschool Attention Study completed enrollment. See our latest update here: Preschool Attention clinic newsletter

This study was a partnership between Children’s Minnesota, Dr. Megan Gunnar and Shanna Mliner, M.Ed. of the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development with funding support by the JPB Foundation.

The goal of the Preschool Attention Study is to measure the development of attention skills of preschool-aged children. We also want to see if family life stress might influence children’s development of these attention skills, and if providing parents with ideas for strengthening their children’s development helps growth of attention skills.

This project was conducted at local pediatric medical clinics over three years of well-child appointment visits starting at age 2 or 3.
