Since 2000, families from the Boston area have been helping us answer questions about children’s development.
We love meeting new families, and those who visit our lab have a great time participating in our fun studies!
Appointments are scheduled throughout the week so that you and your child can participate at a time that is convenient for you.
We provide free parking in the garage across from the psychology department and your child receives a small gift for helping with our project.

Are you interested in our research? Would you like your child to participate?
Fill out the information form. We will contact you soon to schedule a visit.



The CCL is part of the Child Development Labs at Boston University and the Developmental Science Program in psychology.
