Developmental psychology

Uncovering individual developmental paths

We change dramatically over the course of our lives. Development isn’t complete when we reach adulthood; it’s a lifelong endeavour. Consider the different thoughts, abilities and behaviours of an infant versus a school-aged child, and you’ll understand the massive and rapid intellectual and cognitive changes that occur over an individual’s lifespan.

Developmental psychology studies a range of developmental stages, skills and abilities. We seek to understand how people progress through psychological development throughout their lifespan, such as social skills or memory. Our research investigates different developmental paths for individuals with conditions such as autism or Parkinson’s and how we can encourage individuals to develop and age along their optimal path.
