Our faculty members have a wide range of expertise, but all focus on the needs of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Some of our faculty members are more clinically oriented and work directly with individuals and their families, and their research discovers the best methods of treatment. Other faculty members focus on improving diagnostic methods, whether in the laboratory or by examination or behavioral testing. Others are investigating neurological development, examining the genetic and environmental factors that can lead to developmental disorders. Our faculty members also train new practitioners and scientists to carry on this important work regionally and nationally.
