Current research: 

I have several areas of inquiry that broadly fall underneath an umbrella of Intervening with Vulnerable Populations (more specifically, developing, conducting, and evaluating interventions) for families and infants, children, youth, and young adults that are vulnerable for a myriad number of reasons, including developmental disabilities/delays (DD), parental stressors, parental psychopathology, parental functioning,  processes of care, radicalization, learning disabilities, and behaviour disorders. The interventions and evaluations thereof are examined in light of Canadian policy and worldwide shifts in service delivery systems.  My research program on early intervention, in particular, focuses upon (a) longitudinal analyses of family and child functioning while participating in diverse forms of service delivery (e.g., school-based services, intensive and comprehensive services delivered via not-for-profit organizations, public rehabilitation centers); (b) understanding and investigating early intervention services across Canada; and (c) engaging policy makers in moving forward an agenda that promotes a consensus with respect to policies that affect families and children with DD.  Beyond my focus on families who have children with developmental disabilities/delays, and looking at families and children with an autism spectrum disorder, more specifically,  my research endeavours range from -- promoting literacy development in infants to radicalization of youth, to how we can support youth with learning disabilities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, to investigating affective computing. My program of research has been funded by several agencies including; the Social Sciences Humanities Research Council, the Max Bell Foundation , the Office of Disability Issues, the Canadian Institute of Health ResearchMiriam Home Foundation , the Spencer Foundation, and rehabilitation centers in Quebec.
