The overarching theme of her research is to examine the interaction between various aspects of language development, cognitive development, and social cognitive development, and their influence on the overall development of children with autism, language delay, and typical development processes. She is particularly interested in the development pathways of children with autism and how these children's language and cognitive development are affected by their social difficulties.
The rest of the event will showcase talks by Dr. Ryan Stevenson, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Dr. Emma Duerden, Ph.D., Faculty of Education, Dr. Julio Martinez-Trufillo, MD, Ph.D., Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, and Dr. J.
