Introduction of my research
We conduct developmental clinical research based on Applied Behavior Analysis of infants with developmental risk, as well as infants and children with developmental delay (autistic spectrum disorder, learning difficulties, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, etc.). Our studies are developing into investigations of social function (parent-child relationships and relationships with friends), as well as the processes of mastery by therapists, curriculum design, learning support (reading, writing, comprehension, and expression skills), and the processes of spreading support methods. We also conduct analyses of the basic developmental process (including comparison with typical development) involved in recognition of facial expression, visual line, and motion analysis. We hope to cooperate with other related fields of investigation, including pediatrics and engineering.
