CAFE Consortium

Ages: Birth to 5 years

Do you ever wonder how much media is used within your household? The Comprehensive Assessment of Family Media Exposure (CAFE) Consortium is a team of researchers with specialties in psychology, pediatrics, communications, and human development. The goal of the Consortium is to more accurately measure media usage within households and to examine the effects of early media exposure on development.

This study consists of two online assessment surveys and an installment of a passive sensing app (Chronicle for Androids and Screen Time for Apple devices) on all mobile devices for 24 hours. CAFE Consortium works in conjunction with Open Lattice and their product, Chronicle, which was specifically developed for CAFE.

If you would like to participate in the CAFE study, please schedule a phone call with one of our researchers.
