For Parents

What does a typical study involve?

Please refer here for a brief overview of our current studies. Most studies involve children playing games, reading stories and interacting with the researchers. Some studies just require children to tell us about an event that happened to them and/or tell a made-up story. We also sometimes ask parents to fill out questionnaires.

How long and at what time do studies take place?

A visit takes about 30 to 60 minutes and is arranged at a time that is convenient for you. Appointments can be during the day, evening or weekends. We make appointments that fit your schedule.

How old are participants?

Our studies are usually for children between the ages of 3 and 16.

Are there any benefits?

* You have fun!
* You receive a small cash reimbursement.
* Children are given a small toy/gift.
* We learn more about children’s behaviour!

Many children and parents enjoy their experience in our studies and come back for new studies as their children grow. Our researchers are committed to making your visit a pleasant, fun learning experience! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Can I bring my other children to the lab?

If you have other children, they are welcome to come! We have a playroom for children and parents to wait in. Also, additional research staff are around to help out if need be. We have a range of studies for different ages so if you are interested, your other children can possibly do a study if there is one available!
