When your child is eligible for one of our projects, we will contact you by phone or email and explain the project to you in detail. If you decide you would like to participate, we will schedule a time for you to come to Providence College that is convenient for you and your child.
Each visits usually lasts 30-45 minutes.
No problem! We have weekend and evening appointments available.
We are located at Providence College, in a building (Sowa Hall) very close to the main gate at the corner of River Avenue and Eaton Street. We will send you detailed directions and a map when you make an appointment. We will do our best to save a parking space for you in the lot right near our building. Every now and then, security asks that you park on the street, but its only a short walk to our building. No matter what, we will be in the parking lot waiting for you, helping you to park and walking you into the building.
Children meet Kid Think staff in our play area and are given as much time as they need to get comfortable with the room and the researchers. Then, if they want to, they move with an researcher to a table in our testing area. There the researcher will guide them through a series of games (like Simon Says) and ask them questions ("What's your favorite toy?"). Children don't have to participate in any game they don't like or answer any question they don't want to.
When you arrive, a researcher will explain the study to you and you will have as much time as your like to ask questions. If you choose to have your child participate, we will ask you to complete a little bit of paperwork. Then, if your child is ready, we will begin the study!
Absolutely not. You can stay with your child the whole time or watch the study through a window.
Children always get a prize when they visit! For most of our projects, we do not provide any other compensation. But, occasionally, for some studies that are especially long or involve at-home participation, we do provide limited compensation. We will let you know when we explain the study whether it involves compensation or not.
You or your child can stop at any time, for any reason. If you want to withdraw your child from the study even after your visit, just contact us by phone or email and we will delete your child's information immediately.
