Early years development testsUndergraduate Students

Undergraduate students can complete volunteer positions working on autism research in the laboratory. These positions typically involve spending approximately 5 hours per week in the laboratory over the course of two semesters. Alternatively, some volunteers spend approximately 10 hours per week in the laboratory for a shorter period of time (e.g., during summer). Enquiries can be sent to Dr Joe McCleery

Postgraduate Students

Dr McCleery supervises both MRes and PhD students conducting research on brain and behavioural development in children diagnosed with autism, as well as infants who are at risk for autism and other developmental difficulties. These studies include event-related potentials assessments, eye-tracking experiments, clinical/behavioural assessments, and intervention programmes. The laboratory currently has a focus on language learning and development. More information can be found on the FindAPhD project page
