About Research and Grants

At MSC, research is conducted to seek knowledge in key areas of child development, autism, parenting practices, early childhood education, and professional development. MSC’s research team utilizes a variety of methodologies to implement innovative studies with diverse populations. Through the work done in our research department, we can continue to be at the vanguard of educational research and practice, and are able to provide research opportunities for students across a variety of disciplines. Findings from these studies inform both our internal practices as well as the fields of autism, child development, and early childhood education. Our research has been presented at conferences at the state, national and published in peer-reviewed journals.
