Research Focus

My child development research lab focuses on early identification and improvement of intervention for young children at risk for, or diagnosed with, developmental delays and autism spectrum disorder. Primary line of research is NICHD funded longitudinal study examining early cognitive and social indicators of language delay in infants (6 to 18 months of age). Secondary line of research is developing parent training intervention for at risk caregivers and infants (14 to 18 months of age)
