If you and your family would like to collaborate with us taking part in our research, please fill in the following online form:
Most of our research is based on age-appropriate, fun games and tasks for children and families.
Our studies will help us gain more knowledge on how children develop and have a direct implication for education.
The age group varies from birth to 16 years old.
All studies are run by experienced researchers and trained research assistants from Liverpool Hope University. All of whom have a valid Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
When you and your child arrive at our lab, we will provide you with refreshments and further information about the study you will be participating in. If you and your child are happy to participate you will then be asked to read and sign our consent form. Most of our studies will involve interviewing your child about thoughts and feelings relating to everyday social situations. Once the study is completed, we will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
We really value and respect you and your child’s contribution. The data that we collect for our studies is stored in a secure place within a password protected file. This makes sure that nobody besides the researchers has access to the data.
On average, it takes between30 minutes and 1 hours to participate in one of our studies.
At any point leading up to, during, or after the study, you and your child are free to withdraw from participation.
As a token of our gratitude for your time, your child will receive a book and a certificate of completion at the end of the study. Once the study is completed, we will send a brief overview of the group results.
The ChildLab is housed on the ground floor of the Health Science building (building 28 on the map), Hope Park Campus (Taggart Avenue, L16 9JD). When we schedule your visit, we will provide you with a map of our campus (see also below) and information regarding where to park. From that point, one of our researchers will meet you at the car park and walk you over to our lab. We will provide you with a parking permit.
