Dr. Carmichael Olson

Dr. Carmichael Olson’s general research interests center on (1) the impact of parental substance abuse on children's development and (2) identifying best practices for assessment and intervention with prenatally alcohol-/drug-affected children and their families. She has focused on the underserved group of children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). Carmichael Olson and colleagues are currently involved in research with respect to a descriptive study of clinical data on young children with FASD; sleep disorders among individuals with FASD; behavioral interventions for children and adolescents with FASD; and empirical validation of the new DSM-5 category.
