My research has addressed a range of topics in typical development, including in word learning, categorization, memory development, and social cognition. My current research focuses on communication in autism—specifically, the cognitive and social processes underlying communication in nonspeaking autistics, and how some parents and their nonspeaking children develop unconventional but successful ways of communicating with each other.
