Father-Child Play Project

Come and visit our DadLab!

We are running our research project again in 2017! It explores how fathers’ play with children contributes to child development and what things can affect these connections. Play with fathers may provide a particularly rich and safe environment for children to develop essential social, emotional and communication skills.

Dads and Mums: If you are parents of a child aged 18 – 24 months living in the NSW Hunter region and would like to register your interest please click here

For more information about what’s involved please click here or call Jennifer on 4921 6690.

Participation involves two sessions: 1) A dad and child play session and 2) a developmental assessment at Callaghan campus. You’ll receive a free report on your child, which can be useful for schools and clinics, and is usually quite expensive.
