Seattle Children’s researchers want to better understand how different play-based activities influence attention and language outcomes. Families with toddlers between the ages of 18 and 24 months with no serious medical conditions or developmental concerns, born at 37 weeks or more and 4 pounds, 7 ounces or more, and who are exposed to English as a primary language are invited to participate in this study. We are following COVID-19 safety protocols for in-person appointments.

Dr. Dimitri Christakis of the Child Health Behavior and Development Center is the principal investigator of the study. For more information, please contact us at (206) 884-TOYS or
