University of Warwick: Vocabulary Development Study

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
How do children learn the meanings of words?

Researchers at The University of Warwick are launching a Vocabulary Development Study, which investigates the different strategies that toddlers use to learn words.

In this study, they aim to work out the relationships between words that children are picking up based on their caregivers’ speech. Is your toddler a "late talker"?


For this study, they are currently recruiting toddlers who fit the following requirements:

Age 16 to 30 months.

Who are believed to be late talkers. These children usually say/produce fewer words than expected for their age.

The child's language delay is not due to any physical or developmental delay.

English is the only language spoken at home.

Lives in the UK.

In this study, researchers don't make any intervention and parents will only need to download the study's App to track their child's vocabulary. You'll also be asked to send in some audio recordings of yourself interacting with your little one (which can also be done with the app).

Is there any reward for participants?

You will receive two children’s books every month by post for taking part in this study. Additionally, at the end of the study, you will receive a high-quality print, which you and your family can cherish, showing the vocabulary development of your child.
