Curious about your child’s language development? Perhaps a visit to the National University of Singapore (NUS) Infant and Child Language Centre would shed some light.
About the NUS Infant and Child Language Centre
The Infant and Child Language Centre is a non-profit organisation at NUS that studies language development in monolingual and bilingual infants and children in Singapore. It is headed up by Associate Professor Leher Singh.
The focus of the Centre’s studies is on how young children pick up languages and how they learn the meaning of words.

The Centre is currently looking for infants and toddlers between the ages of 2 months and 2 years old to take part in its studies. The child will need to be accompanied by his or her parents.
Studies on Baby and Infant’s Language Acquisition and Cognitive Development
The studies at the Infant and Child Language Centre typically involve a one-time visit to the Centre’s lab on the NUS campus where they will watch a couple of short video clips while sitting on their parent’s lap.
The sessions are usually around 30 minutes, baby-friendly and engaging for the whole family. There is no cost for participating in the studies.
At the end of the session, the young participants will receive a small gift and a “Bachelor of Infant Science” certificate.
