Our lab is now offering online studies! These studies involve fun, game-based activities that you can do right from the comfort of your own home!

Contributing to Our Research

Each online study generally takes about 30 minutes and is presented as a fun activity that your child can do, such as listening to a story, watching a video, or playing games to answer questions about their experience.

We conduct our studies using online video conferencing software (Zoom); once you have scheduled your appointment, we will email you a link to click at the time of your appointment to enter the study.

If your child has siblings, we may have online studies for them as well. We’re currently looking for participants aged 3 years old to 9 years old. 

How to Sign Up

If you are interested in signing up for a study, click here!

Once you have signed up, we’ll email you back by the next business day to let you know which online study your child is eligible for based on their age. Your researcher will then follow up with you and give step-by-step instructions on how to begin your study!

During the Study


Once you and your child are both ready to start the study, we ask that you find a quiet room in your home with little to no interruptions or distractions. You and your child should use a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer with working built-in speakers and microphone, along with a stable wifi connection, to give you the best and smoothest online study experience!


While the studies are running, we ask that you stay in the same room with your child. Although our studies will state that they will take an hour, most studies take approximately half an hour.

After the Study

Once you have completed the study, you will receive a gift card and your child will receive a certificate for their participation! Our researchers will be happy to answer any questions you have about the study. We will also ask if you would like to be included on our mailing list to provide you with updates of our findings over time.
