The Connections Lab

The Connections Lab

The Connections Lab refers to a collection of graduate students, undergraduate students, and other scholars conducting projects related to school and developmental psychology under the supervision of Dr. Steven Shaw. The overall goal is to improve school functioning for the students at highest risk for school failure. Among the populations considered are students with rare genetic disorders, intellectual disabilities, medical issues, low income, behaviour issues, and other concerns. What makes the Connections Lab exciting is that we conduct high quality research, but always use our projects to help students and their families overcome risk factors to experience school and life success.

Our current partners include the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Ile (Montreal, Quebec), Lester B. Pearson School Board (Dorval, Quebec), National Association of School Psychologists, Miriam House, and Instytut Psychologii Uniwersytetu Gdańskiego (Institute of Psychology, University of Gdansk, Poland). 

Dr. Shaw is the Graduate Program Director of the School and Applied Child Psychology program.
