Innovations in Neurodevelopmental Sensory Processing Research (insp!re)

Led by Grace Baranek, the Innovations in Neurodevelopmental Sensory Processing Research (insp!re) lab is a multidisciplinary team of researchers, students, post-doctoral fellows and volunteers committed to advancing our knowledge of early risk signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and related neurodevelopmental disorders. We believe that true innovation occurs at the intersection between science, creativity and technology. We partner with local artists, engineers, clinicians and families to employ cutting-edge methods and technologies to design novel multimodal screening tools, including parent-report and biobehavioral measures, for pediatric community settings. We are also developing efficacious interventions for caregivers and infants to optimize development in social-communication, sensory reactivity and regulation, and overall engagement in daily routines such as play and mealtime.

The insp!re lab is currently recruiting families who have an infant or toddler between the ages of 6-16 months. To learn more about participating in our research studies, please email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
