FAQ

Where is your lab located?
Our lab is located at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, mount Scopus campus. Please see our Contact page for directions and information about parking.

What ages are you looking for?
Our Current Studies page gives some information about the studies our lab is currently recruiting for. If you are interested in participating, register here and we can contact you when we have a new study that is perfect for your child.

Will I be paid to participate?
We do not pay participants, but your child will receive a book as a thank you gift coming into the lab.

What happens when I arrive?
When you arrive, a researcher will greet you in our waiting room. The researcher will explain the study in detail and answer any questions you may have. The researcher will then ask you to read and sign a consent form, and give you a copy to take with you.

Will I be with my child during the study?
No, but you will watch your child from an adjacent room.

How long do sessions usually last?
We schedule one hour appointments, which allow plenty of time for your child to become comfortable with the lab before beginning the study.

What if my child doesn't like the study?
Most children enjoy participating - we design our studies to be fun and game-like. However, you and your child are free to end the session at any time and for any reason.

Will you tell me how my child has done?
We are not looking at the individual performance of children in our studies and our tests are not used to diagnose or treat any type of developmental delays. Rather, we are interested in overall trends of a particular group. Therefore we will not able to tell you how your child fared individually, but once the study is completed we can tell you what children of your child's age tend to do. We will update our website with recent findings and can alert you when we post findings for a study you and your child have participated in.
