How long does each study take and will I be with my baby the entire time?

Yes, and all of our studies typically take around 30-40 minutes total.

Do I get compensated for participating?

Yes. Every time your child participates in a study he/she will get to pick out a book or toy as a thank-you present for participating.

How many times will I need to come in?

As many times as you'd like! Your participating is voluntary.

What ages do you study?

4 months to 5 years, as of right now. Note that new studies are always being added. Feel free to contact us with your info, and we will contact you once your son/daughter is in range to participate in a study.

Can I bring other children to the lab with me?

Yes! We have a playroom with plenty of toys where children can play with a research assistant while you participate in a study in a nearby room with your baby. Please let us know ahead of time if you will be bringing children so that we can make arrangements.
