Studies



How did the COVID-19 pandemic impact children’s everyday lives?
In this survey, we are interested in how children's language exposure may have changed as a result of the pandemic. In this brief 5 minute survey, we will ask you to reflect back on what your child's life was like at 4 time points over the course of the past 2 years. For each time point, we'll ask you to think about your childcare arrangements and the languages your child heard at those times.

If your child has a severe-to-profound visual impairment
We are conducting studies about language development in children with severe-to-profound vision loss. This study has two components that can be conducted at home: parent surveys and an audio recording. Families located anywhere in the US can participate. For families local to the Durham, NC area, there are additional optional in-person components. See here for details.
