This website is designed for parents in the Oswego community. Our hope is that you will participate in one of our Projects. Our projects focus on behavioral development in infants. We greatly desire to learn more about infant development so that babies and parents can benefit from the knowledge we gain.

We are a small group of dedicated individuals. The project Director, Leigh F. Bacher, received her Ph.D. from Cornell University's Department of Human Development in 1998. She joined the faculty at Oswego in 2001 after 2 years of Postdoctoral Research at Binghamton University with Dr. William P. Smotherman.

Please do contact us, we look forward to meeting you and your baby! The Questions? page answers several common questions that parents often have about our projects.
