Colleen Huebner's research and teaching expertise integrate three overlapping areas in public health and child development. They are: (1) the development of language and emotion regulation and the constitutional and social factors that can influence these processes; (2) parent-child interaction and family functioning during first five years of life; and (3) the design and evaluation of appropriate interventions for children and families at-risk for poor outcomes due to experiential or environmental factors including poverty, low parental education or maternal mental illness. Dr. Huebner is an adjunct member of the faculty of the School of Dentistry and co-Director of the Northwest Center to Reduce Oral Health Disparities. She is also a Research Associate with the Center for Human Development & Disability.

This project,with Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound, evaluates a program of expanded prenatal and pediatric health services for families with young children (birth to age 3 years). This project is part of the National Health Steps for Young Children study; it is unique in adding a prenatal component to the national, multi-state project.
Learning Links I: A county-based approach to support young children
The purpose of Learning Links is to translate findings from experimental research to create a series of developmentally-timed, community-based interventions that support children's progress toward school readiness over the years of 2 to 5. Current research evaluates 3 different modes of delivering information to parents about how to promote early language development through shared reading. The study is supported by funding from the University of Washington's Center on Mind, Brain and Learning.
