Additionally, only the position of labels within sentences were significantly related to toddler language, however, higher rates of simpler sentences predicted poorer toddler language outcomes.

Anthony Puliafico (Columbia University), her MA thesis examined the psychometric properties and clinical utility of a new psychiatric screening instrument for use in paediatric primary care settings.
Her research interests lies in the cognitive mechanisms and benefits of music for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Her master's thesis examined the role of executive functions in musical ability of children with ASD with the objective of establishing evidence for the cognitive and social benefits of music education in this population.

Parent use of object labels in interaction were compared across these outcome groups, additionally, use of labels within different engagement states was compared across outcome groups.Ultimately, her goal is to better understand the unique communication style of emotion associated with autism.Moreover, she hopes to provide further theoretical support for music based interventions aimed at improving the communication of emotions in speech within this population.She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in the Specialized Honours program for Psychology at York University and her Masters in the School/Applied Child Psychology Psychology program at Mc Gill University. James Bebko, explored the processing of audio-visual information in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).As an undergraduate student, Hadas was a lab coordinator and research assistant in several labs that conducted research in ASD.Despite evidence that these deficits are present among HR children, few studies have examined how object labels and others aspects of input may vary within different joint engagement (JE) contexts.The present study aimed to fill these gaps by observing and recording naturalistic parent-child interaction at 18-months in the home.She completed a Bachelor of Arts specializing in psychology at Mc Gill University.Soon after graduating, she began working with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and volunteered as a research assistant at the Mc Gill Youth Study Team, a research lab headed by Dr. As a result of her passion for learning about and working with children with ASD, she decided to pursue a master’s in Educational Psychology at Mc Gill University.Jacob Burack (Mc Gill Youth Study Team) and is supported by Fonds de Recherche Québec Société et Culture (FRQSC).Her research interests lie in clarifying emotion recognition abilities in children and adolescents with autism via music and speech prosody.
