The TEXAS Family Study

Welcome to the TEXAS Family Study!

Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex families are invited to participate in a fun, engaging study of early child behavior. The study includes three online surveys and a laboratory visit. We are looking for families with twins or two siblings between 2.5 and 5.5 years of age.

Participating families will be given a $25 gift card for completing 3 online surveys. Eligible families will then be invited to visit our laboratory at UTA where the children will participate in a series of engaging activities. Upon completion of the lab visit each family will receive a $50 Target gift card, a free DVD of the children's lab visit, souvenirs including small toys for the children, and tote bags for parents. The $50 gift card and souvenirs will be given to all families participating in full lab visits.
