Identifying Toddlers Reinforcement of Physical Activity through Choice of Play Preference
The goal of this study is to see if toddlers prefer to play with different types of toys. Toddlers will attend two 1-hour long play sessions at the UB South Campus. These play sessions will happen about one week apart. During the visits, parents will complete a few surveys and the toddler will play in two different areas with age-appropriate toys. Parent and toddler heights and weights will be recorded. Toddlers will be asked to wear an activity monitor around their waist during and in-between the sessions.
The study objectives are to examine reinforcing value of physical and sedentary activities using a conditioned place preference (CPP) task,
examine the correlation between at home physical activity and preferences for physical activity during CPP task and examine the reliability of CPP for measurement of activity preferences in toddlers.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
