Neurodevelopmental disorders

Vision Statement

My research focusses on the cognitive and social problems experienced by children and adults with genetic syndromes associated with intellectual disability. This research helps further understand the difficulties faced by individuals with rare genetic syndromes and their families. It is hoped that this research will translate into practical and effective interventions that ultimately improves the well-being of individuals with rare genetic syndromes.
