Infant and Child Studies Centre | Home

Are you curious about children's language, cognitive, and social-emotional development?

The Infant and Child Studies Centre at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) was established in 1973 for the purpose of studying children’s development. Over the years, while infants and children engage in game-like tasks at our state-of-the-art facility, we have gathered valuable information about the development of babies and children from 4 months to 15 years of age. There are four labs associated with the Centre: Dr. Elizabeth Johnson's Child Language and Speech Studies Lab, Dr. Samuel Ronfard's Childhood Learning and Development Lab, Dr. Tina Malti's Laboratory for Social-Emotional Development and Intervention, and Dr. Doug VanderLaan's Biopsychosocial Investigations of Gender Laboratory
