Description of research: Developmental disabilities are a broad category of conditions that are associated with impaired physical, language, cognitive, and/or behavioral development. Individuals with developmental disabilities may require specialized support to achieve positive clinical outcomes.
Faculty within Behavior Analysis Studies collaborate with faculty in
- Physical Therapy to identify developmental phenotypes within the first year of life that are predictive of autism spectrum disorder
- Pediatrics to develop effective and efficient treatment protocols for individuals who display challenging behavior during hospitalization, and
- Neuroscience and Physiology to better understand behavioral changes that accompany developmental disabilities like autism.
