The University of Pittsburgh’s  Parent Promoting Early Learning (PPEL) team is currently recruiting 2-year-olds (up to 38 months) and their families to be a part of their online study. The study looks at how parental interaction may affect school readiness in children through a series of activities completed with a researcher. The study will be done from the safety of the family’s own home via Zoom and all learning materials are provided. If needed, a laptop and Wifi hotspot can be lent to participants. As part of this research study, participants will complete two Zoom calls, two phone interviews, and an online survey.

Families will receive compensation for their participation!
