Children ages 10 to 18 months needed for language study

Studies in the Language Development Lab explore how infants learn and use language.

For this study, researchers are interested in how 10- to 18-month-olds understand what others are talking about. For the study, infants watch people talk about some toys and then are asked to play with the toys. The study involves a one-time visit of about an hour to a playroom on the Peabody campus.

Participants needed: 10- to 18-month-old children

Compensation: Children receive a toy or book for taking part

Visits: One
