Who we are and what we do:

The Ch.I.L.D. Research Group at the University of Calgary is made up of four developmental psychology labs, all of which explore how infants and children develop language, learning, and social understanding.


  • Our research uses fun, game-like projects to investigate the development of language, learning, and social understanding in infants and children (newborns to 14 year-olds).


  • Participation in our projects usually involves a one time visit to the University of Calgary, and lasts less than one hour.


  • When a study is being conducted with children in your child's age range, a Ch.I.L.D. researcher will contact you to provide you with full details. You can then decide whether you would like to participate.


  • We will arrange an appointment time that is convenient for you and your child, including evenings and weekends. We have free and easily accessible parking, and we will accompany you and your child to the lab.


Thank you! Your support makes our research possible!
