Exciting Opportunity

Dear Parents and Guardians:
The Project Play researchers at Northeastern University need your help! Project Play's goal is to create a measure that can be used to evaluate progress in play for children who are developing with delays. The results will be used to set instructional goals for these children, because of the importance of play in development. The project's success depends upon the participating families. We ask for your help in recruiting this final group of children, whose play activities would contribute critical information to our project.

We still need to recruit approximately 12 preschoolers:
  • Whom receive services through an IEP; and who are turning 3 ½, 4, and 4 ½ years old
What will happen?
  • We ask that a parent/caregiver play with his/her child for 30 minutes at home while we provide toys and videotape the playtime
  • We administer a brief screening test to the child
  • We also ask about family background and about the child's overall development
What will you receive?
  • An educational toy for your child, a $100 gift card, and brief report of your child's play
All materials are de-identified, analyzed in a confidential workspace, and stored in locked files. If you are interested in participating, please call (617-373-5916); email ( projectplay@neu.edu); or sign up through our website: www.northeastern.edu/projectplay/participate

With warm regards and appreciation,
Karin Lifter, Principal Researcher, and the Project Play Team
