We are a research centre at The University of
Queensland devoted to
understanding how babies, toddlers and young children understand the
world around them. We are always in need of participants (newborn to 5
years old). Our studies are conducted at The University of Queensland
in the Early Cognitive Development Centre (ECDC).
What do we do?
At the ECDC, children participate in activities and
games that are
reveal new facts about how they understand the world. Sometimes our
participants watch specially-made videos, other times they engage in
interactive games involving hide-and-seek,
imitation or problem-solving. While at the Centre, parents stay with
their children throughout. Each child
receives a small gift and a certificate for participating and parents
receive bi-annual newsletters outlining key findings from our studies.
The research that we do contributes to a richer and more detailed
child development. It also helps informs professionals who work with
including those with disabilities. Honours and postgraduate students
earn research degrees while working in the ECDC. Finally, families who
visit the Centre enjoy a unique and
stimulating experience, and learn more about themselves and others
along the way.
