Research within the section is dedicated to learning about and investigating the many facets of typical and atypical development across childhood and adolescence. Using state-of-the-art neurobiological, clinical, and physical technologies, we conduct research on a broad range of topics, including reading in young school-aged children, language development in preterm infants, problem-solving in preschoolers, and myofascial structural integration (rolfing) on children with cerebral palsy. Using national databases and information found in the electronic medical record, we are investigating shared decision making among families and clinicians, and implementing quality-improvement strategies to adjust processes and enhance patient outcomes.
