Child Language Lab


Our work is made possible by research participants like you, who volunteer to take part in our studies. If you have questions about our work or want to sign up to participate, contact us! We’d love to hear from you.

Children and families

Children and families can participate at our lab in Philadelphia, PA or online via our virtual lab. Online visits usually involve video chatting with one of our research assistants or sending in a video of you and your child doing a particular task (like reading a story together).


Penn students can participate (online or in person) by signing up for SONA. If you are not a Penn student, you can sign up to participate in online research via Prolific.
