How do I sign up to have my child participate in a study?
You can provide us your contact information here! We will contact you to schedule a study visit according to your schedule, after a short phone interview about your child’s development.
How long does a study last?
Depending on the age of your child, a study will last 30 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. A full visit (from meeting you to saying goodbye) usually lasts about 1 hour, because we take time to explain everything to you before the study and answer any questions

What will I do at the visit?
We have different studies where your child will either sit on your lap to watch a short movie, and we have other language-related activities where your child will be with one of our staff. You can always be with your child if he or she wants you there. If you are in our reception area, you will be able to watch your child on a video monitor.
What do we get for participating in a study?
Most of our studies pay $25 for a visit. We appreciate you taking the time out of your schedule to participate. Your child will receive stickers during the visit. At the end of each visit your child will choose a book and a small prize to take home.
