## Temperament Over Time Study ([TOTS]; in collaboration with the University of Maryland)

Currently, we are working on the TOTS which is a collaborative longitudinal study of children’s social development funded by the National Institute of Health. In this study, a large group of infants were recruited at the University of Maryland and have now been followed regularly for 15 years. In the Social Development Lab, we focus on how these children interact with their peers at each age of assessment. Using detailed behavioural coding schemes, we record both the quantity and quality of children’s interactions during unstructured and structured tasks.
