Research

Supporting Hope
WEAP's research shows that Wisconsin children increased an average of 25 IQ points and that over 70% learned to speak in phrases within one year. Once a child has learned to process and use language, our treatment program addresses social skills. Results show that almost 50% of the children move into the average range on measures of adaptive skills and teachers' ratings of social skills. These same children show increases in IQ from an average of 55 at the beginning of treatment to 104 after three to four years of treatment. Their academic skills increase to the average range and they are able to succeed in regular classes without support.

Most importantly, they have friends.
