How to Participate


How to register on-line for participation:

If you have looked through our website and would like to participate in our research, please fill out our registration form to indicate your interest. By filling out the registration form, you have expressed your interest but have not made any commitment to participation. As your child approaches the right age for one of our studies, we will call you and give you more information about that study. At that time, you may decide whether or not you'd like to participate in that particular study. Please feel free to contact us via e-mail (langlearninglab@stanford.edu) or phone at (650) 723-1257 for any questions about our program.



Other ways to register for participation:

You can also register by calling us at (650) 723-1257. We will give you more information about our research and answer any questions you may have. If you decide to participate, we will request information about your family and your child in order to get in touch with you when your child approaches the right age for one of our studies.

If you have received a letter from us with a reply postcard, you can also just return the postcard. We will call you to give you more information!




Confidentiality

If you received our introductory letter, we keep your name and address on file ONLY if you have taken the initiative to contact us, and only if you have indicated further interest in participating in our research. All information about families who have chosen to participate is kept secure and not shared with anyone else. All participants in our studies are identified by number rather than by name in all research records, and all records and data are treated as confidential.
