Study participation is fun! Kids enjoy “playing games” with our researchers. Participation gives families a chance to play a vital role in improving education and intervention programs
What happens once I sign up?
Northwestern child development labs in the Child Studies Group may contact you via phone or email with information about study opportunities your children are eligible for.
They will explain what participation involves, when appointments are available, and ask if you would like to participate in their study. Signing up for the registry does not commit you to anything—it just gives you a chance to hear about studies that might interest you.
