sdcl-uwaStudy on Gender Nonconformity in Children

Hi from the Social Cognitive Development lab at the University of Washington! We are researchers interested in social development in children and have a new research project we are currently recruiting families for. The project aims to better understand gender development by studying the topic in gender nonconforming and gender conforming children.

Our new study takes 30-60 minutes and includes children from ages 3-12. We will be running the study in a quiet room at the Gender Odyssey Family Conference for the convenience of families interested in participating in the research. We are reaching out to gender nonconforming children as well as their gender conforming siblings (where applicable).

Payment is $10 per parent and $10 plus a small toy per child. There is an optional longitudinal component that we can tell you more about as well if you are interested.

To sign up for the study, please visit If you have any questions, feel free to contact our lab or phone (206-616-1371). Thanks for considering being a part of this research!
