Infant Lab


The Infant Lab team explores infant development, assessing babies’ physical (motor) and mental (cognitive) skills. Our research looks at babies who are reaching their developmental milestones on schedule and those who are delayed. Our goal is to develop:

1. Techniques to identify developmental delays sooner.

2. Early intervention programs that will help infants with delays catch up.

3. Investigate proper physical therapy dosage for children with motor delay.

Our team consists of lab director Dr. Jill Heathcock, lab coordinator Mike McNally, and many students ranging in experience from high school to graduate school. For more information about our staff, visit the People page.
