Language Development Lab

Participate in Studies

The Language Development Laboratory at Mills College, under the supervision of Dr. Priya Mariana Shimpi, is looking for infants and children from 6 months to 6 years of age to participate in new studies about the development of early communication skills. These studies take around 45 minutes, and are designed to be fun for parents and children.

Some of the questions we ask:

• What do toddlers learn from eavesdropping on the conversations of others?

• How do children learn from television and other media?

• How might early experiences, such as having a sibling or hearing two languages, influence learning?

The lab is located in the Education Building on the Mills College campus. View map and directions.

If you are interested in participating in our research projects, please do not hesitate to contact us at 510.430.2114 or email pshimpi@mills.edu.
