Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

My substantive expertise lies in supporting very young children and their families, birth to age five, who are experiencing developmental and social emotional difficulties. My research interests include the timely identification of children with developmental delays and disabilities, development of coordinated systems, professional development for early childhood professionals, parent support programs and deinstitutionalization. As well, I am interested in the use of data-informed decision-making and participatory research methods.
