Participate in Georgetown Early Childhood Development Research

our family participates in their studies--it's a nice way to give to research; visits are quick and fun!

Dear Baby and Parents,

Have you ever wondered what your child is learning or remembering from different media sources? Here at the Georgetown Early Learning Project we are currently looking at how babies acquire and retain information from computers, books, television, and screen media.

Currently, we are looking for 6- to 54-month-olds and their parents to participate in a fun study.

Typically our studies involve:
- Coming to your home for 1-2 visits lasting 15-30 minutes each.
o We come to you because home is where babies are at their best!
o We are available to come anytime- early morning, in the evening,
or even weekends!

-Showing your child either a live or videotaped demonstration with any
number of our fun toys.

-See if the child remembers the game at a later time (either the next
day or a few minutes after)

If you are interested in participating or would like further
information, please call us at (202-687-6988), email us at, or look us up on the web at We will answer your questions, and
hopefully arrange a visit!

Also, feel free to visit the NPR website
at to hear an interview with our director, Dr. Rachel Barr.

Thanks so much and hope to hear from you soon!
