Dr. Guralnick

Dr. Guralnick’s research centers on assessment of peer-related social interactions and social integration of young children with developmental disabilities, and the design and evaluation of early intervention systems. In studies involving observational analyses of peer interactions in controlled playgroups and assessment of peer social networks in community settings, Guralnick has identified and characterized the unique peer interaction problems and associated developmental mechanisms experienced by the vast majority of young children with developmental disabilities, including children with Down syndrome and others with mild (cognitive) delays. He also conducted the first comprehensive randomized clinical trial to enhance the peer-related social competence of young children with mild developmental delays. Current projects focus on the peer relationships of children with autism and the further development and application of the Developmental Systems Approach to early intervention.
