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.
The FIND website is for parents/carers and professionals. It provides information about neurogenetic disorders including Cri Du Chat, Angelman and Cornelia De Lange. For professionals there is access to an interactive database. The website also gives information on current research projects that are being conducted in individuals with rare genetic syndromes and neurodevelopmental disorders.
