How does atypical attention affect developing cognition?

This project (2012-2018) investigates how attention difficulties modulate interactions with the environment, and whether these are amenable to intervention. It also contrasts distinct genetic disorders with common high risk of inattention and hyperactivity, to understand similarities and differences in attention trajectories.
