Local Babies & Toddlers Eligible to Participate in Georgetown Research

Filed Under:

Thanks to DC mama and Georgetown U. staffer Rachel Barr for sharing this great info:

We are very eager for local families to participate in the Georgetown Early Learning Project (ELP)! At the ELP, we are attempting to document what kinds of information babies notice and remember over the first two years of life.

We are particularly interested in how infants pick up information from 2-D objects. Many of you may have seen the recent New York Times or Time magazine articles that show that in fact we currently know very little about whether and how much young babies and toddlers might be able to glean from media. This is where the ELP comes in. We conduct studies with infants from six- to 18-months and are always looking for new participants. Our work will help us understand how infants learn from the different sources at very early ages.

All our studies take place in your home, because that is where babies are at their best. We are willing to come at any time - early in the morning, in the evening, or even weekends! We are very flexible and accommodate even the busiest schedules to include you.

If you are interested in participating or would like further information, please call us at 202.687.6988, email us at: earlylearning (at) georgetown (dot) edu, or look us up on the web at www.elp.georgetown.edu.
