Resources & Research
The Groden Network directs and supports comprehensive research as a part of its mission to assist children and adults with autism, developmental disabilities, and behavioral challenges to lead productive, dignified, and satisfying lives. We have partnered with world class researchers in Italy and New Zealand, on development of a “talking hand” that allows autistic individuals to create speech via hand gestures and with UC Irvine to create “mindfulness” that can help us regulate behavior. These are just two of the projects that Chief Clinical Officer, Cooper Woodard, Ph.D. and his team are engaged in that honor the hallmarks of innovation, creativity, and functionality begun by Doctors June and Gerry Groden.
Research findings are disseminated through scholarly publications (e.g., books, book chapters, journal articles), presentations at scientific conferences, and teaching activities via seminars and workshops.
