Infant and Child Studies Centre


The Infant and Child Studies Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) was established in 1973 for the purpose of studying children’s perception of speech and music. Every year since then, hundreds of families from the surrounding communities have visited the campus to participate in our studies. While infants and children engage in game-like tasks at our state-of-the-art facility, we gather valuable information about the early development of listening skills. There are four labs associated with the Centre: Dr. Sandra Trehub's Music Development Lab, Dr. Elizabeth Johnson's Infant Language Lab, Dr. Glenn Schellenberg's Music & Cognition Lab, and Dr. Tina Malti's Social-Emotional Development and Intervention Lab.
