Research

Welcome to our research pages! Within we provide abstracts of current studies with commentary, and guidance for researchers working on new projects. We also include a comparison of commonly used tools based on costs, practice expense/benefits, psychometric foundations, etc. (The Research tab on the left will direct you to pages with links, etc.)

After reading through these pages, if you have a study to share or need to discuss a project please contact us.  For research projects we encourage you to use PEDS Online because its scoring is accurate and automated, the site includes PEDS, PEDS:Developmental Milestones, and the Modified Checklist of Autism in Toddlers, provides referral letters when needed, parent take-home summary reports, and generates an exportable database of results that can be concatenated with other measures/study protocols.  We can also license digital copies of our measures as needed.
