Center for Autism and Behavioral Education Research
The Center for Autism and Behavioral Education Research is focused on research, training for educators and therapists, and providing needed services to the community for individuals with autism spectrum disorders or other developmental disabilities (of all ages), and children who are struggling either academically or behaviorally.
The center comprises a multidisciplinary group of faculty members who share their expertise around the shared goal of applying behavior analytic principles to affect beneficial behavior change. Faculty and affiliated students conduct research on a range of topics that include (but are not limited to):
- Early child communication and language development
- Parent coaching
- Severe problem behavior
Through our collaborative efforts, we are helping to shape the fields of developmental disabilities and education by applying behavioral science to improving the skills, behaviors, and academic achievement of individuals with disabilities.
