UW-Green Bay’s Language Learning Lab is once again looking for local parents interested in having their children ages 24 months through 4 years participate in a major study of toddlers’ skill and language development. Prof. Jennifer Lanter of Human Development is asking alumni, University employees and returning adult students with young children to consider volunteering for a visit. Participation is easy, with only a single 30- to 45-minute session in which the parent gently guides his or her child through a few simple play exercises. Participants (the children, anyway) get a free book or toy as a parting gift. Lanter and/or one of her student research assistants will observe.
If you have a child between the ages of 2 and 4 and a willingness to play games for science, contact Lanter at MAC Hall C322; email Lanterj@uwgb.edu, or sign up online at the project website, www.uwgb.edu/learnlab.
