Early Childhood



The ECS Early Childhood Unit seeks to engage in research to improve the educational, social-emotional and behavioral outcomes for young children (birth to eight years) with developmental disabilities or at risk for developmental disabilities, and to improve quality of life for children and their families.  The Early Childhood Unit conducts applied research (a) to develop effective assessment and intervention practices to treat developmental delays, and (b) to identify individualized and system-wide practices that lead to increased use and sustainability of evidence-based practices by caregivers, teachers, and other professionals.


Current projects include:

*Parent education for Latina mothers of young children with autism spectrum disorders

*Telehealth model of behavioral consultation for families of young children with autism spectrum disorders

*Pearl Duck Autism Center (affiliated with Pearl Buck Preschool, University of Oregon University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities and the Early Autism Research and Learning for the Young Child program)
