We study how children remember, forget, and tell about things in their lives. Our research is used to help adults—such as doctors, lawyers, social workers, and other helping professionals—talk to children about things they’ve experienced.


Families who participate in our studies visit the lab and children play fun and educational activities and are later asked about what they did. Using this basic procedure, we learn about children’s memory and we make recommendations about how adults should talk to children when they need to know what children remember.
