Participants needed

(18 September 2020)

Do you have a child who has just started in reception at school? We are looking for 4 and 5 year olds (and their parents / caregivers) to complete some language games over a video call. Taking part will last around 30 minutes and will award you a £10 Amazon voucher. If you are interested in helping our research, please contact the PACT (Parents and Children Together) team at

You and your child both need to be able to understand and speak English and your child should not have any special educational needs. You will also need a tablet, computer or laptop with a camera and microphone and a good internet connection. The sessions are part of a research project run by a team at the School of Education at Durham University and a team from the University of Manchester to develop ways to remotely assess early years language and communication skills.
