What is involved?

You will accompany your child for up to 4 visits to our lab either in Manhattan, NY or White Plains, NY. Each visit will be approximately 3 hours and spaced 12 months apart.

What happens when I come to the lab?

We will play a series of games with your child. Most of the games will involve your child playing with toys with a member of our research staff, as well as completing puzzle and picture games. These interactions will be videotaped. For some of the games, your child will wear a wristband that includes a motion sensor. You will be in the same room with your child for the entire visit.
