Virtual Activity Session

If you have completed our PEACE online survey, you may be invited to participate in a 30-minute virtual activity session with your toddler. The session consists of table and floor activities; these are activities we typically do in the laboratory to understand the social experiences of parents and toddlers. 

How to prepare for the virtual activity session

Please ensure that other family members or pets are occupied and ideally in another room for the duration of the appointment. If you will be expecting any delivery, please put a note on the door to prevent any knocking or doorbell ringing from disrupting the session. 

Video Setup
  • Set up a computer or a tablet with audio and video capabilities.

  • Ensure that Zoom is downloaded and can be opened. To begin your session with us, use the Zoom link that was sent to your email.

  • Turn off Self View when prompted. To do this, hover over your video tile and click on the three horizontal dots that appear. Select "Hide Self View" (pictured to the right).
