Welcome!

The achievements of chess grand masters, musical virtuosos, and Olympic athletes hardly match what children accomplish when they learn their native language by the tender age of three. How do children do it?

Since 1974, the Infant Language Project at the University of Delaware, under the direction of Dr. Roberta Golinkoff, has been investigating this and related questions.

Where Babies Teach Us!

Babies can't tell us what they know about language or how they learn it. But we have methods that allow us to peer into infants' minds to see how they approach learning a language.

We run studies for children anywhere from 3 months to 4 years of age. If you're interested in participating, please contact us!
