FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

HOW CAN MY CHILD PARTICIPATE IN YOUR RESEARCH?

We conduct our research in our lab at Boğaziçi University, kindergartens, schools, summer schools and camps throughout Istanbul.

I HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD. CAN I BRING THEM ALL?

Certainly. You are welcome to bring all of your children. If there are no studies that your children can participate in, they can play in our family waiting area either with you or with our research assistants.

CAN I BE WITH MY CHILD THE ENTIRE TIME?

Yes, you can be with your child throughout the entire study and observe his/her responses or reactions.

WILL MY CHILD RECEIVE ANYTHING FOR PARTICIPATING?

Every child that participates in our research receives a small gift and a personalized certificate from our lab.

WILL I RECEIVE FEEDBACK ON MY CHILD'S PERFORMANCE?

In our research, we are typically interested in the behaviors of a large group of children belonging to the same age group, rathen than children's individual responses. However, we can share our hypotheses, expected or preliminary findings with you.
