Cool, Locally Made Kids' Communication & Skills Tool

October 27, 2015


Awesome tool for kids to connect the dots between how they're feeling, who's involved, and how to cope.  Great way "in" for kids and adults to talk about the important, sometimes uncomfortable stuff.  Please check it out and consider pre-ordering a deck.  Every bit of support helps get this project off the ground.  Thank you!!  Feedback welcome here or via email - ksnellryan@gmail.com

Fun activity for mamas and babies!

March 02, 2008

Hi! I'm a research assistant and thesis student at Reed College. I'm looking for moms and babies of about a year old to participate in my study on how people demonstrate objects to each other. Participating entails a one-time visit to our playroom in SE Portland, where you'd sit at a table with your baby and show him/her some new toys. We videotape the interaction and analyze it later to learn more about how babies learn. You get a free cute baby t-shirt for participating and it's a huge help for my study and infant research in general- there's a chance you could be part of published research on infant's cognitive development!

If this sounds interesting to you, give our lab a call at 503-517-7440 or e-mail us at ReedCDP@gmail.com and we'd be happy to answer any questions you have about our research.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the sun!

Seeking babies 12-19 mos old for research

October 30, 2007

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!*

For more information, visit our website:

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.
