UCLA Language and Cognitive Development Lab

The UCLA Language and Cognitive Development Lab needs your help! We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study investigating how the use of sign language influences language development. The study is for hearing children 15-27 months of age, who are monolingual English speakers (i.e. speak/hear English more than 70% of the time), but have had experience learning and using signs to communicate (ASL or modified ASL).

You will get a book as a gesture of our appreciation for participation! The study takes place in our lab at UCLA. We provide parking. For the study, we will play a fun label-learning game with your child. You will remain with your child at all times. Visits usually last about an hour. Our lab schedule is very flexible, we should be able to find a time to visit that is convenient for you and your family.

Please contact Emily at 310-206-8286 or

We would be very grateful for your participation!
