disability • cerebral palsy • developmental delay • outcomes • etiology
My research focuses on the causes, consequences and outcome of children at risk for, or with, a neurodevelopmental delay. I am particularly interested in identifying clinical causes that have the potential for interventions and especially vulnerable sub-populations of children at risk for adverse outcome. In doing so, I evaluate the diagnostic effectiveness of novel technologies and refine our evaluation protocols.
