Boston Children's Museum
Would your baby or young child like to participate in a research study? Children and parents usually find our studies fun and interesting, and we encourage you to participate.
If you choose to volunteer, your baby or child may do some of the following things:
View live puppet shows or simple video displays involving colors and shapes, objects (such as cubes and balls), or children’s toys (such as plastic ducks).
Be given the opportunity to play with simple toys or read storybooks.
We'll look at what attracts your child's attention. By observing the responses of a number of babies and children, we can get an idea of how babies and young children develop theories about the world and how their ideas change with new evidence.
Studies in infant and childhood development would be impossible without your support! If you have a baby or young child between the ages of 3 months - 6 years old and you would like to have him or her participate in our studies, please contact us by clicking here to find out more!
