The Parents Promoting Early Learning (PPEL) study at the University of Pittsburgh is looking for parents with four-year-old children who are willing to participate.

Study participation will include:

  • two visits to one’s home or the PPEL office for a caregiver and their child to complete games and assessments;

  • questionnaires and interviews about the development and activities of the child;

  • a one-year follow-up visit for more games and assessments; and

  • compensation.
