Early Detection of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Research Synopsis: The focus of my research interests have shifted from using screening tools to detect autism spectrum disorders in toddlers to determining ways to enhance comprehension of information taught in psychology courses.  I am currently developing self-assessment tools for students to utilize, particularly in introductory level science courses.
Courses: PSYC 1100, 1101, 2100WQ, 2300, 2301, 2400, 3301
