Project studies how children learn language
4:01 p.m., Oct. 1, 2012--Parents and their young children are needed for the Infant Language Project at the University of Delaware, which is trying to find out how children learn language.
The project -- directed by Roberta Golkinoff, H. Rodney Sharp Chair in the School of Education -- includes studies for children up to 4 years of age that explore various aspects of the language-learning process.
Giving today to shape tomorrow
During a 30-minute visit to the lab, research assistants play with children to help them feel comfortable in new surroundings. Then they present a short game or show a movie and monitor children's eye movements.
