  • My program of research aims to understand the developmental needs of young children, study and test evidence-informed interventions for this population, and examine leadership frameworks that support cross-systems collaborations for health and education professionals. My research is grounded in practice and engages external partners in collaborative efforts to understand, inform and advance current practice across health and education systems for children and youth with developmental disabilities and the professionals who work with them. Collaborators have included partners in pediatrics, federal Part C early intervention programs, and programs aimed at improving the implementation of services and supports (such as Maternal and Child Health, community-based organizations). My work is grounded in a developmental systems model, which provides a framework for early intervention services for young children. This model recognizes that child developmental outcomes are influenced by family patterns of interaction.
