Two-year-olds invited to participate in a study on learning words
Two-year-olds invited to participate in a study on learning words.
Participants needed for the study are toddlers, 22 to 36 months old, with a parent or caretaker. The principal investigator is Georgene Troseth, Ph.D., associate professor of Psychology.
Researchers are examining how very young children first understand and use simple symbols such as video images and pictures, compared to interactions with adults to solve problems.
The research activities include a game where children imitate an adult playing with toys or learn new words and use them in their play. Sessions are about one hour long. We also ask you to share information about your child's development, vocabulary and media use by filling out a couple of questionnaires.
Your child will choose a book or small toy.
