One primary line of research is focused on early social communication and language. The overall aim of this programmatic work is improve early identification and inform intervention approaches.

One focus within this line of work has been to improve parent’s ability to facilitate optimal language interactions during early book-sharing experiences. This has involved developing intervention programs for Part C providers (Ready, Set, Share A Book!).

Each of these intervention programs is designed to disseminate and scale evidence-based interventions for at-risk young children.
