Graduate Study Request

Just had this request come in...

"My name is Dena Valentino and I am a graduate student at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I am working on my thesis, which is about teaching people how to use baby sign language with their children in their homes.

Parents or caregivers of children ages 6-24 months and on solid foods may be eligible to participate in this study.

Participation will involve:

  • An initial meeting (lasting 30-45 minutes) to complete an informed consent procedure, meet with you and your child, and discuss the study and questions you may have
  •  Scheduled sign-training sessions based on your availability- each training session will not last more than one hour
  • A scheduled follow-up session 1-2 weeks after training that will last between 30 and 45 minutes
Compensation for completing the study: Baby Signs (book) by Joy Allen

Participation is anticipated to take approximately 10 weeks. Participants are free to withdraw from the study at any time, no questions asked!
All parts of the study will take place in your home.

If you are interested in learning more about this study, and to see if you are eligible to participate, please call Dena Valentino at
