Currently, Lisa is appointed as a PhD student at the department Clinical Child and Family Studies, Psychosocial Problems on the project: ‘Screening and assessment of Infants and Toddlers: markers of long term outcome or a Crystal Ball?’. She investigates the development of young children to understand what a 'normal' and 'abnormal' development entails, and which factors influence this process. Additionnally, she researches often used screening and assessment tools like the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) and the Bayley-III to gain more insight into what these instruments tell us. Furthermore, she collects data of young children to create Dutch norms for the new version of the ASQ. For more information, take a look at www.ontwikkelingvoorop.nl or OntwikkelingVoorop!.
