Parents in Broken Arrow may soon get the chance to find out what future roadblocks their children could face in school.

"It will be very nice to have a blueprint and know exactly what we are dealing with," said Monica Hale.

Hale and other teachers will soon have the answers they need to find out how these pre-K students are wired in a three-part study involving teachers, a University of Oklahoma research team, pre-K students and parents.

Parents with children in pre-K will receive a consent form in the mail and detailed questions to fill out on their child.

The first step gives parents a blueprint of their child and what behavioral or temperament issues could stand in their way.

Dr. Robert Hudson told FOX23 they will pinpoint a child's disposition and traits.

This blueprint could be an indication of what's to come at age 18.

"To start off in a successful environment that way we can help when they begin to struggle we don't want to wait until it's a crisis mode," said Dr. Hudson.

Just completed the first step today online. It was a short, simple survey asking questions regarding my child's anger or tantrums, attention span, and how he responds in social situations. I'm looking forward to getting the results!
