Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Zippert, Erica L.; Boice, Katherine L. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Because math knowledge begins to develop at a young age to varying degrees, it is important to identify foundational cognitive and academic skills that might contribute to its development. The current study focused on two important, but often overlooked skills that recent evidence suggests are important contributors to early math development:…

Zippert, Erica L.; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany – Grantee Submission, 2018
The goal of the current study is to develop a more complete understanding of the early "home math environment," encompassing both numeracy and non-numeracy aspects of that environment. Parents of preschoolers (n = 63) were surveyed about their support of three components of early mathematics knowledge (i.e., numeracy, spatial, and…

Rodas, Naomi V.; Eisenhower, Abbey; Blacher, Jan – Grantee Submission, 2017
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are at heightened risk for developing comorbid psychological disorders, including anxiety disorders, which may be further exacerbated by the presence of externalizing behaviors. Here, we examined how structural language and pragmatic language predicted anxiety and externalizing behaviors. Participants…

Berkovits, Lauren; Eisenhower, Abbey; Blacher, Jan – Grantee Submission, 2017
There has been little research connecting underlying emotion processes (e.g., emotion regulation) to frequent behavior problems in young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study examined the stability of emotion regulation and its relationship with other aspects of child functioning. Participants included 108 children with ASD,…

Caplan, Barbara; Feldman, Melanie; Eisenhower, Abbey; Blacher, Jan – Grantee Submission, 2016
The quality of early student-teacher relationships (STRs) has been shown to predict children's school adjustment, and children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are at risk for poor quality STRs. The present study examined 162 children with ASD (ages 4-7) and their teachers to evaluate student, teacher, and classroom characteristics that…

Eisenhower, Abbey S.; Blacher, Jan; Bush Hurst, Hillary – Grantee Submission, 2015
The associations between student-teacher relationship (STR) quality and externalizing behavior problems in school were examined among 166 children with ASD (82% boys, ages 4-7 years) across three assessments over a 1.5-year period; IQs in the sample range from 50 to 139 (M = 88.7). Unlike other non-ASD populations, the association between STR…

Pears, Katherine C.; Kim, Hyoun K.; Healey, Cynthia V.; Yoerger, Karen; Fisher, Philip A. – Grantee Submission, 2015
The transition to school may be particularly difficult for children with developmental disabilities and behavioral difficulties. Such children are likely to experience problems with self-regulation skills, which are critical to school adjustment. Additionally, inconsistent discipline practices and low parental involvement in children's schooling…
