Interested in our research?
The Early Years Reading Lab has many ongoing studies that your child may be eligible for. By participating, you help us gain a better understanding of how visual processes impact early reading development. Children often have positive experiences in our lab and it can be an excellent way for children to have an experience with science. Visits to our facilities usually take around an hour. Children and families are also compensated with an age-appropriate toys, books, and compensation for travel costs.
NEW for August-September 2022!
The Early Years Research Lab is seeking adults to participate in a study on visual attention and reading at the University of Winnipeg campus. The study involves measuring brain waves while doing visual attention tasks. We will also measure reading fluency.
If you are interested and have some time to participate (the study takes about two hours, and participants will receive $20 cash compensation), we’d love to hear from you. Please send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and to let us know if you’re interested. A researcher will be in touch to answer your questions and if you’d like to participate to talk about next steps in being involved. Please see the linked poster for some additional information.
If you are interested in participating in one of our studies, feel free to contact email@example.com
The Early Years Reading Lab accomplishes much of its work with the help of our invaluable volunteers. Volunteer opportunities in our lab are frequent and involve responsibilities that can range from data entry and scoring reading tests to helping hands-on with our EEG data collection or test administration with children. Volunteering in a research lab looks great when applying to graduate programs or jobs. We are interested in students who enjoy working with children, are detail-oriented, and are a team player. If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am able to supervise students' Honours theses in Psychology, independent student summer projects such as the PURE or URA, as well as graduate studies in School Psychology or Clinical Psychology. If you are interested in working with me at the undergraduate or graduate level, feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
When inquiring about supervision or volunteering, please include an unofficial copy of your transcript, an updated CV or resume, and a statement on your research interests and career plans.
