Child Development Studies (for parents)
Welcome to the University of Louisville Child Development Studies website.
We are currently looking for families with children ages 0-12 who would like to participate in studies on the UofL Belknap campus. Studies for infants and children under age 7 typically take 30 minutes or less, and studies for children ages 7-12 take from 30 minutes to four hours. Studies are scheduled at times that are convenient for families and free parking is provided. Children receive prizes for participating and families may receive compensation for their time.
