Research Description:

My laboratory is primarily focused upon research concerning the etiology, assessment, and treatment of childhood disorders: in particular, autism spectrum disorders, developmental, attention, and learning disorders, as well as family variables and issues. The Institute for Child Development maintains a state certified, full-day school serving children 12 months to 12 years of age), as well as child clinics (The Children's Units) that provide "in-house" opportunities for clinical training and research. A large, full-time professional staff is employed by the Units, composed of individuals in clinical psychology, school psychology, neuropsychology, special education and speech pathology. The laboratory has extensive state of the art research equipment.

Philosophy of Graduate Training:

Emphasis is placed upon developing both excellent research and clinical skills as these are seen as necessary and mutually enhancing. Research emphasizes both basic and applied questions. A strong mentor-collaborator model is used.
