         The RADD Lab is a research lab at Michigan State University that is dedicated to issues related to autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. RADD stands for - Research in Autism and Developmental Disabilities. The lab is directed by Sarah N. Douglas, PhD - an Assistant Professor in Human Development and Family Studies Department. Our work within the RADD Lab is focused on supporting children with disabilities, their family members, and their educational teams.

         The RADD Lab includes graduate students and undergraduate research assistants who support our work. We have conducted projects related to family functioning and support, peer relationships, children's communication and functioning, paraeducator support in schools, and professional development for educators. Our work is primarily within applied settings such as community settings, classrooms, and the homes of families. Lab members are focused on publishing and presenting their work in academic, practitioner, and media platforms. With all of our projects we strive to conduct research that is applicable, useful, and directly impacts the lives of children with disabilities.
