My research areas of expertise and interest in young children stem from my days as a Master’s student at the University of Washington where I worked with very young children and their familie Read more »
My research focuses on the following specific areas in both typical and atypical development of young children: (1) typical development in social attention and joint attention; (2) prevention and early intervention for young children with autism (including early indicators of autism and autism risk); (3) parent-mediated interventions and parent-child interaction; and (4) understanding ‘at-risk’ development and resilience indicators and mediators of development. In addition, many of my research projects focus on partnering in communities, with Family Resource Centers (and First Things First funded programs), and collaborations across disciplines to examine both biological and behavioral underpinnings of developmental trajectories.
