The  Child Language Lab at the Centre for Language Sciences (CLaS), Macquarie University, is currently seeking children aged 2- to 2 1/2-year for a project examining language development. The project is funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC).

All studies are held at Macquarie University and parents will be requested to attend the center with their child  for a one-time session where play based activities are developed as part of the research.

Each participant will be provided with a $20 Coles/Myer card and a small gift.

According to the Child Language Lab, children do not speak like adults, and their research is aimed towards learning what kinds of changes typically developing children make to words. If they  can learn more about the kinds of difficulties  that typical children have with pronunciation, they hope to figure out the causes  associated with children with speech delays and inform better practices
