Research & Outreach
Our research focuses explicitly on improving the emotional, behavioral and cognitive functioning of individuals with or at risk of disability. We work directly with individuals and their teachers in educational contexts (preschool, and k-12), with families in their homes and in our clinics, and with various community agencies.
A driving force behind all our efforts is to design, implement and evaluate systems (educational, familial and community) that have the potential to improve the lives and outcomes of children, youth and adults.
Project SELECT is developing a curriculum for use by parents and home visitors that will improve social emotional competence in young children with disabilities and at risk for disabilities.
