Dane County Participation

Interested in helping us improve methods for teaching young children? Join our research project! Our study looks at how young children learn sounds and learn words.  Both you and your child can be involved! 

Who can Participate?

  • Children who are 2½ to 5 years old
  • Children who speak English as their first and only language
  • Children who have normal hearing and are typically developing
  • Children with cochlear implants

 

How does the Study Work?

Sessions take place at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Waisman Center, located at 1500 Highland Ave, Madison, WI. There are two different projects you can participate in.

  • Your child will participate in language activities and word games.
  • Your child may participate in 1 – 6 sessions.
  • Sessions last about 1-2 hours.

As a thank you for helping us, each child will receive a small toy, a book, and you will be paid!
