This chapter is the first Psi Chi chapter in Canada, and our mandate is to provide our members with opportunities to earn grants and awards, connect with others who are involved in the psychological community, and get access to tips and resources that can help them study better and get accepted to grad school. Please explore our site to learn more about what Psi Chi is about, how to join, and why you can benefit by becoming a member.
I am looking for volunteer RAs to assist me with a study looking at the relation between language ability and executive functioning (planning and problem-solving skills) in preschoolers (ages 3-5 years). RAs will primarily assist with data collection and will be trained on a large battery of cognitive and language measures. I am looking for students who can commit at least 4-5 hours per week (1 morning or afternoon for testing + travel time to local preschools).
