Please contact the lab to have your child participate in one of our studies. If we are currently conducting a study with your child’s age group, and your child is eligible to participate, we will call/email you to give you more information.

Did you receive a consent form from your child’s school and have questions for us?

We work with several local preschools and elementary schools. Please indicate which school your child attends when contacting us. We are happy to give you an overview of the research project and answer any questions that you may have.
