Collaborative Research Area on Environmental Influences and Behavioral Development

Coordinator: Susan Spieker, Ph.D.

The Collaborative Research Area on Ecological Factors encompasses the effects of the environment on developmental trajectories throughout the lifespan. Research involves the association of poverty and family disruption related to mild developmental delay and behavioral problems in children, and how the environment influences the developmental and behavioral outcomes achieved by individuals with varying risks for delay or disability. A special focus is on the quality of parent-child interaction and environmental influences on language and social cognition. Behaviorally-informed preventive interventions for children at high environmental risk are also conducted as part of this CRA.
