"Promoting physical activity and the development of motor skills"

My laboratory includes researchers, graduate students and community members interested in children and individuals with special needs.


I publish the outcomes of my research in a range of local and international journals concerned with physical activity and health in children and persons with special needs.

Current research

Two of my current projects are 1) a longitudinal study of young children’s motor skills and physical activity, and 2) BMI analyses of Special Olympics International athletes


I teach in the areas of motor development and maturation from the neonate to old age, with a focus on the growth and motor development characteristics of children and adolescents.
