Anketell, Pamela M.; Saunders, Kathryn J.; Gallagher, Stephen M.; Bailey, Clare; Little, Julie-Anne – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2015
Anomalous visual processing has been described in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but relatively few studies have profiled visual acuity (VA) in this population. The present study describes presenting VA in children with ASD (n = 113) compared to typically developing controls (n = 206) and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in a…

Marsh, Jessecae K.; Zeveney, Andrew S.; De Los Reyes, Andres – Grantee Submission, 2020
Understanding how mental health treatments benefit those who receive treatment comes with a challenge: Often different people involved in treatment have different impressions of the treatment's ultimate effects. How do people reconcile these different reports to understand the true benefit of treatment? In a series of 4 experiments, we tested…

Spencer, Trina D.; Moran, Meghan; Thompson, Marilyn S.; Petersen, Douglas B.; Restrepo, M. Adelaida – Grantee Submission, 2020
The purpose of this cluster randomized group study was to investigate the effect of multitiered, dual language instruction on children's oral language skills, including vocabulary, narrative retell, receptive and expressive language, and listening comprehension. Participants were 3-5 year old children (n = 81) who were learning English and whose…

Xu, Judy; Friedman, David; Metcalfe, Janet – Grantee Submission, 2018
While much research shows that early sensory and attentional processing is affected by mind wandering, the effect of mind wandering on deep (i.e., semantic) processing is relatively unexplored. To investigate this relation, we recorded event-related potentials (ERPs) as participants studied English-Spanish word pairs, one at a time, while being…

Doabler, Christian T.; Clarke, Ben; Kosty, Derek; Kurtz-Nelson, Evangeline; Fien, Hank; Smolkowski, Keith; Baker, Scott K. – Grantee Submission, 2019
Group size and treatment intensity are understudied topics in mathematics intervention research. This study examined whether the treatment intensity and overall intervention effects of an empirically-validated Tier 2 mathematics intervention varied between intervention groups with 2:1 and 5:1 student-teacher ratios. Student practice opportunities…

Robinson-Cimpian, Joseph P.; Thompson, Karen D.; Umansky, Ilana M. – Grantee Submission, 2016
English learners (ELs), students from a home where a language other than English is spoken and who are in the process of developing English proficiency themselves, represent over 10% of the US student population. Oftentimes education policies and practices create barriers for ELs to achieve access and outcomes that are equitable to those of their…

Kapelner, Adam; Soterwood, Jeanine; NessAiver, Shalev; Adlof, Suzanne – Grantee Submission, 2018
Vocabulary knowledge is essential to educational progress. High quality vocabulary instruction requires supportive contextual examples to teach word meaning and proper usage. Identifying such contexts by hand for a large number of words can be difficult. In this work, we take a statistical learning approach to engineer a system that predicts…

Leat, Susan J.; Si, Francis Fengqin; Gold, Deborah; Pickering, Dawn; Gordon, Keith; Hodge, William – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2017
Introduction: In addition to optical devices, closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) and eccentric viewing training are both recognized interventions to improve reading performance in individuals with vision loss secondary to age-related macular degeneration. Both are relatively expensive, however, either in the cost of the device or in the amount of…
