Dr. Stone’s primary research interests are in early identification and early intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders. Work has focused on identifying and characterizing the early emerging behavioral features of autism. Stone has studied several aspects of early social-communicative development, including play, motor imitation, and prelinguistic communication, examining their contributions to later behavior and diagnostic outcomes. Research with young children led to the development of the Screening Tool for Autism in Two-Year-Olds (STAT), which is now being adapted for use with younger children. Current research projects include the social-emotional development of infant siblings of children with autism, the identification of social-communicative and electrophysiological markers for autism in children under 24 months, and the evaluation of a parent-implemented intervention for young children at risk for autism spectrum disorders.
