Atypical Development

The Uppsala Child and Babylab has a strong tradition studying atypical development, in particular children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Many of these efforts are large scale longitudinal studies, following infants at risk or older children for up to several years. Common aims include decomposing complex constructs like ADHD into simpler and more manageable units of analysis, identifying early developmental paths linked to later diagnosis, and facilitating early diagnosis and treatment in the long term.
