If you have a baby younger than two years, we invite you to participate in research on infant development at Reed College. At the Cognitive Development Project, we study how infants learn about the
world around them.
*We have a special need for babies between 12 months and 19 months right now!*

In our playroom on the campus of Reed College in SE Portland, we create situations that are safe and fun for children. By studying the way babies behave in different situations, we learn more about how
their minds work. For example, one current study examines whether infants learn words better when the repetitions of the word are grouped together or spaced apart, with other images shown in between.
Each study requires only a 1-hour visit to our playroom. We might show your child a new toy or a short video. You would stay with your child the whole time. Babies usually have fun because they see new toys and get friendly adult attention! To thank you, we offer a cute child's t-shirt, and we can reimburse your travel expenses.
For more information, or to schedule a visit, please reply to this message or call the CDP to speak with a researcher.
