Participate in our research for 4-5 year olds!


How do memory and language interact throughout development?

This study involves a guessing game with a researcher on Teams (similar to Zoom) for Part 1, and two short interactive online games (Part 2):

  • In the Teams session, a puppet will describe some pictures, and we are interested in your child’s interpretations of what the puppet says.
  • The games can be played on a touchscreen tablet or laptop, and involve tapping different animals on the screen.

To participate in this study with your child, please read the information below, and click “Next” below to view the consent form and choose a time for the Teams session (Part 1).

After this, you will receive the link to the online games (Part 2), which may be played either before or after the Teams session.

After you complete both parts of the study, we will send you a certificate of participation to thank you for helping us find out about children’s language.
