The research undertaken focuses on the difficulties experienced by children and adults who have intellectual disability, Autism spectrum disorders and genetic syndromes that are associated with developmental delay. A team of clinical and academic psychologists, undergraduate and postgraduate students and volunteers conduct high quality research into emotional, cognitive and behavioural difference and disorder in individuals with these neurodevelopmental disorders.
Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders
In the next phase of this research programme, the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders will be making an exciting transition by expanding to comprise a collaborative and dynamic network of researchers. The Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders will be led by four alumni of the Cerebra Centre; Dr Caroline Richards (University of Birmingham), Dr Jo Moss (University of Surrey), Dr Jane Waite (University of Aston) and Dr Hayley Crawford (University of Warwick). Network research hubs located at each university will focus on key themes that are central to improving the lives of individuals with severe and complex needs and their families including research into sleep, atypical autism and mental health, while continuing our work on self-injurious behaviour and pain in this population.
