Forskningsprosjekter

My  research examines behavioral, developmental and temperamental features in boys and girls with and without developmental disorders and disabilities. My primary interest is in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), and how gender and sex affect early identification, and how this potentially can affect treatment and the need for tailoring of instruments and interventions that are sex sensitive. My PhD thesis was titled "Autism Spectrum Disorders: Complexities Associated with Sex Differences, Screening and Diagnosis". My research is primarily based on the Norwegian Mother and Child Study and clinical samples.
