The lab was established in 1997 by Dr. Connie Kasari, one of the world’s leading experts in autism research and treatment. Our team is devoted to creating interventions that are successful, backed by research, and able to be implemented in every day settings. Our current research focuses on the core characteristics of social communication in children with ASD. Projects are carried out primarily in school and community settings with the goal of improving communication and relationships with others.
