Participate in Research

We maintain a database of people (adults, children and families) that are interested in participating in literacy research. Signing up for this research database is the first step to getting involved with the lab! We have studies designed for:

  • children who are struggling with learning to read
  • children who are excelling in literacy
  • children with or without dyslexia
  • college students and adults in the broader Bay Area
  • adults at all different reading levels

Studies involve a variety of methods including:

  • Online experiments through the web-browser
  • Computer based experiments
  • Educational intervention programs designed to improve reading skills
  • Educational Technology
  • Brain Imaging

Joining the research database does not mean you have to participate in any studies – it is just our means to contact you when we have a study that we think you might be interested in. When a new study is starting, people enrolled in the database might be invited to participate. All studies are conducted in person at Stanford University. If you are a parent interested in signing up more than one child, please fill out a separate form for each child.
