Project Description

Dr. Kevin Kaut, a professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Akron, and a former school psychologist will examine in depth the impact Chiari has on school age children and adolescents with a $53,000 grant.

Dr. Kaut will interview and assess Chiari patients in different age groups to gather data on their cognitive abilities and school experiences. By scientifically examining how Chiari affects children in school, Dr. Kaut believes he can then develop materials and guides for both parents and school officials to maximize Chiari children’s participation in the school environment.
