Play and Learning Across a Year

Ages: 12, 18, or 24 months

What does a typical day look like for you and your baby? Your typical day could give researchers valuable information about how infant play unfolds in real time. We are currently seeking mothers of infants between 12 and 24 months old in the DMV to participate in a study on how moms play with their babies.

This study involves a one-time visit by our researchers and takes place within the home to accommodate the busiest of schedules. Participants will also be compensated for their time!

This study takes place within the home and consists of Jessica or Kiera recording you and your baby for one hour as you go about your day as normal followed by questions about his or her skills and routines and five minutes of structured play.
